Another student from the NSUI has been fined ₹10,000 for shouting slogans while the remaining ceremony of the JNU Central Library was in progress in April.

The proctorial inquiry against Manish Kumar Meena who was fined ₹20,000, says that he was found blocking the road near Sabarmati bus stand and at the T-point near the administration block due to which inconvenience was caused to students, teachers, staff, visitors and schoolchildren.

The letters received by the students from the proctor’s office, states that keeping in mind career prospects, the Vice-Chancellor has taken a somewhat lenient view in the matter.
