The Kakatiya University in Telangana witnessed tension after scores of students barged into the Vice-Chancellor's office and damaged furniture on Wednesday.
The students, affiliated to the ABVP, alleged that there were errors in the evaluation of Degree and PhD entrance examination papers, and raised slogans against the varsity's administration.
According to reports, the students claimed that the negligence of the administration, resulted in several students getting poor marks.
The local media reported that students outnumbered the police and went on a rampage, breaking doors and damaging furniture, which resulted in some students and police personnel getting injured.
“The degree results sheet is the best example to showcase the negligence of the university. Some of the students were given 105 marks out of a 100 in a subject. Some students who appeared for the examination were marked as absent in the results. Such negligence by the officials proves costly for a student’s future. The university must revalue the scripts. An enquiry must be carried out and the officials responsible for this negligence must be punished," the Deccan Chronicle quoted ABVP leader Laxman as saying.
As the protests refused to die down, VC R. Sayanna, addressed the students, and assured them that their demands would be met.
“An expert committee will be set up to inquire into the issue. We are solving the issues one by one. Some technical issues have led to these errors. The examination branch officials who are responsible for the errors will be punished,” he said.
He appealed to the students to call off the agitation, and promised that the inquiry would be conducted in a transparent manner.
