JNU slaps Rs 6000 fine on student for preparing ‘Biryani’
A Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student was slapped with a fine of Rs 6000 for cooking 'Biryani' near the stairs of Administrative building and eating it thereafter along with other students on 27th June.
The notice by the Office of the Chief Proctor issued on November 8 said this 'act of Md Amir is in serious nature' and unbecoming of JNU student and calls for a strict disciplinary action against him.
To penalise the students, the order invoked a clause in JNU rules that deal with any act that may be considered by the vice-chancellor or any other competent authority to be a violation of discipline and conduct.
