Some criminally minded students erroneously believe that they are immune to arrest and prosecution for criminal offences committed in the campus. It should be understood clearly that the management of the college has no right or power to prevent the police and other law enforcement agents from performing their statutory functions. Hence students involved in acts that are criminal in nature or likely to cause disturbance or breach of public peace such as robbery, cultism, extortion, rape, assault, fighting, rioting, inciting, etc will be subject to severe disciplinary action and in extreme cases, to expulsion from the college. The Provost reserves the power to handover such culprits to the police and other law agents. Students stand expelled from the college on conviction.
