SRCC student manhandles prof over internal marks
A student at Delhi University’s (DU) Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) allegedly manhandled a faculty member in the college premises on Friday, over a dispute regarding internal marks.
The student of Global Business Operation (GBO) course at SRCC was allegedly caught in a scuffle with an Assistant Professor, after he did not score good marks in internal assessment. “The student slapped the teacher at least three times and then kicked him, while the latter was about to leave for home around 5.30 pm,” a senior SRCC faculty member said.
“The student never attended classes. He has failed all papers. He was harassing the Assistant Professor and forcing him to give him better marks. When the teacher refused, the student manhandled him,” he added.
