On Saturday, over 10 students were issued showcause notices for blocking the officials and raising slogans against moral policing. The female student was issued a notice for entering a boys hostel. The students were suspended after an inquiry committee submitted its report on Monday.

A university spokesperson said, "The competent authority has approved the report and the recommendations of the committee that holds the students guilty of the charges of unauthorised entry of outsiders into hostel rooms, refusal to show identity cards, switching off the hostel lights, sloganeering against the wardens, physical intimidation, verbal assault, and preventing officials from delivering their duties.” Prathyush Nirjher, Athira Unni V. and Sagrik Saha have been suspended from their academic programmes and hostels for two years.
