The Cochin University of Science and Technology Syndicate met on Thursday to conditionally revoke the suspension of four among five students who were suspended last October.

The students were suspended on charges of attacking syndicate member and KSU leader Tony Rafi and injuring two other students who were hospitalised during the arts festival held on the campus.

Syndicate member Harikumar who conducted the inquiry found evidence against the four suspended.

However, considering the suspension period as punishment, the syndicate has decided to revoke their suspension on condition that they tender an apology and give an undertaking that they would not violate the code of conduct of the varsity.

The suspension of the fifth person was fully revoked as no evidence was found against him. The Syndicate has also decided to push for the release of Rs 10-crore interim relief sanctioned by the government last July.

A Syndicate delegation will meet Chief Minister Oommmen Chandy and Finance Minister K M Mani soon to request for the speedy release of the fund. This would help the varsity meet a Rs 50-crore financial deficit.
