AIIMS revokes rustication order

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, FEB. 24. The All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) today revoked the rustication order served on six medical students, thus bringing to an end the weeklong confrontation between the students and the institute administration on the issue. The order came after the students reportedly apologised and assured the authorities that they would follow the AIIMS guidelines.

The AIIMS administration had rusticated the six students last Tuesday on charges of indiscipline and vandalism on the campus after they stormed the Director's office. These students were protesting against the administrative orders of making 75 per cent attendance compulsory for the medical students.

Sources said the students submitted written apologies to the administration agreeing to follow the code of conduct and also comply with the attendance rule. Meanwhile, this morning all medical students attended their classes that they had been boycotting since Monday last.
