“It was more on a temporary basis. The students then appealed against the termination. In the senate meeting held last month, appeal by postgraduate and research students were heard and nine of them got permanent termination. In Tuesday’s meeting, the senate heard appeals of undergraduate students. I was not part of that meeting, so I cannot confirm the exact number of students permanently terminated,” said Agarwal.
