NIT-Calicut puts off suspension of Dalit student who protested against Ram temple event

The National Institute of Technology in Calicut on February 2 temporarily deferred the year-long suspension order issued against a Dalit student who protested against Ram temple consecration last month on the campus.

The Dean of Students' Welfare on January 31 suspended Vysakh Premkumar, a fourth-year engineering student, for unlawful gathering.

The suspension led to widespread protests on the campus, with major student organisations like the Student Federation of India, Kerala Students Union, and the Fraternity Movement joining the movement.

According to Onmanorama news outlet, a large number of students staged a sit-in at the main entrance late Thursday evening forcing the campus authorities to reconsider the suspension order.

“As per the directives of the competent authority, the decision to suspend Vyaskh Premkumar is hereby placed on hold until the appellant authority decides the appeal submitted by the concerned student,” read the latest order issued by the Dean of Students' Welfare.
