3 Indian Institute of Management IIM-Indore students Expelled for Taking Drugs




Three students of the post graduate programme of management at Indian Institute of Management in Indore have been expelled after they were allegedly caught taking drugs.
On Wednesday, the hostel staff had spotted the second year MBA students consuming narcotics and informed the


faculty incharge of the hostel professor Siddharth Rastogi.

Rastogi immediately reached the hostel premises in the campus at Prabandha Shikhar Rau and caught them red handed. This is the second case in a year of such kind.

In February two students from Integrated Programme in Management and PGP were also found taking drugs. They were rusticated first but were later pardoned and allowed to complete their courses.

In the recent case a preliminary inquiry was conducted by the officers at the hostel on Wednesday after which a detailed investigation was done by the disciplinary committee at the institute.

“The committee found the student guilty of the offence and submitted the report to the director. The students then filed an appeal with the director asking for some relief and second chance but the director rejected their plea,” said IIM-I public relation officer Akthar Parvez.

Looking at the gravity of the issue the authorities concealed the identity of the students to protcet their future prospects.

Parents of the students were informed immediately about the incident.

They reached the institute, and requested the director to pardon the students but the institute decided to stand by its action probably with a hope that it might act as a deterrent in future.

When HT contacted IIM I Director Dr N Ravichandran he refused to comment on the issue and said, “When someone dies you don’t go to his house to ask how you feel. It is a sensitive issue. I am in Mumbai so contact me after a couple of days.”
