According to a Jamia press release dated Dec. 12, Jamia had expelled (they say ‘suspended’ but I think they mean expelled) the four law students who were involved in the kidnapping and gang-raping of a minor girl that was reported in the press on Dec. 5. [Link]
In response, the accused had filed a writ petition in the Delhi High Court against Jamia, challenging the expulsion.
The statement states: “One of the accused, Sharad Shekhar Tomar, a 3rd Semester student of B.A. LL.B. along with three others had filed a writ petition (vide Case No.7745/2012) against the university and had challenged the decision to suspend them from the rolls of the university.”
But the court, presumably today, ruled against the petition and upheld Jamia’s decision to expel the students.
The release states: “Hon.’ble Justice G.S. Sistani upheld the decision of the University to suspend the students and stated that the Vice Chancellor’s decision to take disciplinary action against the students was justified.”
