Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Some anxious moments were witnessed during the annual convocation ceremony of Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi on Saturday morning, as the Director of IIT, D.P. Kothari collapsed at the very start of the convocation and had to be subsequently admitted to a hospital for treatment.

No sooner had Dr. Kothari taken his seat upon completion of his speech at the start of the convocation, he collapsed. He was then rushed to Sitaram Bharatiya Hospital where doctors conducted a CT scan and found a blood clot in his brain. They later declared that 61-year-old Dr. Kothari was out of danger and on the path to recovery.

In the meantime, the convocation ceremony continued as per the schedule and the Managing Director of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, E. Sreedharan, was presented with the Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa) by the Chairman of the Board of Governors, M.G. K. Menon, for his contribution in the field of national development.
