NIT-Warangal expels 5 students :

The National Institute of Technology (NIT) at Warangal expelled five students and suspended two others after a violent clash between two groups on campus, officials said. The clash took place on March 11.

NIT authorities, however, took the action immediately after an inquiry committee submitted its report on the clash.

As per the report, a group of students stabbed a final-year B Tech student with a knife and severely injured him during the institute’s annual cultural fest.

The two students, who were suspended, have been barred from the campus for a period of two years. Seven other students were also charged with attempt to murder.

The student who sustained stab injuries is undergoing treatment in a private hospital.

A day after the incident, the Kazipet police arrested six of the seven students involved in the attack and they were sent to judicial custody.

The motive behind the stabbing is yet to be established. But the police suspect that it could be related to rivalry that rose during the Students Council elections held in August 2017.
