Sambalpur, 11/12: Serious charge has been levelled against the Sambalpur University. Registration has not been done even three years after the beginning of the MSc Physics course. The degree has been futile in absence of the affiliation by the university.
The aggrieved students have locked the Physics department of the university in protest. Police clashed with the agitating students during the agitation. This has intensified the student unrest. Forty two students are on fast unto death over the issue. The students are on dharna since December 1.
The authorities had recently written to the university for giving affiliation to the course three years after starting admission. But the registration of the course has not yet been done. This has sparked off resentment among the students, as it has cast shadow on their future career. The students have demanded measures to keep their career from the first batch to final batch safe.
