Greater Noida: The Sharda University management has suspended two students in the past 24 hours for allegedly creating a ruckus on the campus and beating up Afghan and Kashmiri students last week.Varsity officials said more suspensions were likely over the next few days and some could even be rusticated depending on the findings of a three-member inquiry committee set up by the university.Sources said while one student was suspended on Sunday, the action against the other was taken on Monday. The suspended students are Sukumar Sanskar, who is in the second year of BA (LLB) course, and his batchmate, Akshay Nagar.While Sanskar had been named by Kashmiri student Aihtsham Bilal, who was allegedly beaten up by a group of local students, the action against Akshay came for his alleged role in the series of protests held on the campus.“Akshay has been suspended for his involvement in a fight with another student at gate number 4 of the university last month. Prima facie, his involvement in the latest case has also come under the scanner and an action is likely against him, subject to the findings of the inquiry committee,” said joint registrar Ajit Kumar.University officials on Monday held a meeting with the inquiry committee members and decided that a report would be submitted to the SDM (Sadar) and police on Tuesday.In multiple videos — some uploaded by vigilante Deepak Sharma on Facebook — a few of the students can be seen using abusive language against international students, followed by his rants , As Reported By TOI.

They have been shown the track record of their children and other incidents of indiscipline in the past,” an official said on Monday.The university has also started hiring more bouncers and decided to increase their strength to 150. The move comes after the Greater Noida police wrote to the university seeking that they rake up safety measures on their premises..
