450 DU law students detained from giving exam due to short attendance

By LawStreet News Network      14 May, 2019 01:21 AM      0 Comments

Delhi University's Law Faculty issued a notice detaining 457 students from appearing in the examination due to the shortage of attendance. The action from the varsity provoked the students to hold a protest on May 09, 2018 as one day before the faculty of law had released the detention list stopping 450+ students from writing their exam which is starting from May 14.

For sitting in the examination, a student needs to have at least 70% attendance which is mandatory as per the rules made by the Bar Council.

The protest which was led by RSS backed Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarti Parishad (ABVP) demanded that the admit cards should be returned to the students as they have given an undertaking to complete their attendance in the next coming semester.

The students are complaining that they never got any prior notice from the administration regarding their short attendance. Contrary to this, dean of Law Faculty said that students are informed every month about their attendance status.

Reportedly, this is not the first time that the students got detained from giving the exam. Kawalpreet Kaur, President of All India Student’s Association’s Delhi University and also a student of Law Faculty, said that “This is the case every year, many students get detained. This is a serious issue which the faculty has to address.”
