SHAH ALAM: University authorities have been asked to be fair and not expel the nine undergraduates detained by police for demonstrating against the campus election process.

Deputy Higher Education Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said the matter should be left to the police.

He hoped the university authorities would not charge them twice for the same offence.

“Every university has its disciplinary action where expulsion is the last resort. I hope it would not come to that,” he said after opening Karangkaraf Carnival here yesterday.

In the incident on Jan 23, police detained the nine who were among 200 students from various universities who took part in the protest against the campus polls process at Menara Tun Razak, Jalan Raja, before marching to the Sogo shopping complex about 500m away. — Bernama
