The VC further warned that the university has zero tolerance for all forms of anti-social activities such as membership of secret cult groups and examination malpractices.

“The penalty for involvement in any of these activities is rustication from the university, and I do not waste time in doing this once a student is found culpable.”

Giving the breakdown of the admitted students into the various faculties, he said “College of Medical Sciences (502), Agriculture (345), Communication and Media Studies (666), Education (466), Engineering (1,611).
