“It was a scene of utter hooliganism which didn’t augur well with the University setting. Many students sought action against the employees for setting a bad precedent,” said an official privy to the incident.

He said such episodes could hurt the psyche of students, besides tarnishing the image of the University in the eyes of the public.

“The VC directed strict action against the employees over hooliganism and indiscipline, leading to their suspension. An inquiry committee has been set up to further probe into the matter and recommend future course of action,” the official said.
