The South Asian University (SAU) has rusticated, expelled or suspended five students for ‘unruly behaviour’ during an ongoing protest by the students of the university. The students have been demanding an increase in stipends under the freeship scheme from October 13. SAU was established through an agreement between SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) nations to provide quality education to its students.
Among the suspended students is a Bangladeshi citizen who studies in the economics department of the university. What are the demands of the protesting students and what do the university administrators have to say, find out in this ground report by Zeeshan Kaskar.
