On Sunday The Delhi High Court said-‚ÄúTerrorising‚Äù teachers is an ‚Äúunthinkable‚Äù and ‚Äúshocking‚Äù act, after it was told that a Delhi University law student had threatened a female professor who had caught him cheating during exams.
The incident was brought to the court’s attention by senior advocate N Hariharan, appointed by the bench as an amicus curiae in a matter concerning the standards of law education in India.
Anguished by the incident,a bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Najmi Waziri said it was an ‚Äúanathema‚Äù to call such institutions schools or refer to such persons as students.
The Court made the strong remarks after it was told that former DUSU President Satender Awana, pursuing LLB from the Faculty of Law in Delhi University had threatened a lady professor who had allegedly caught him cheating during the semester exams in May-June this year.
The court also questioned the university for not taking any action.
The bench directed the police to ensure protection to the professor.
