NIT Silchar Students Appeal to President Murmu for Urgent Intervention Amidst Campus Crisis


Students of the National Institute of Technology (NIT) in Silchar, Assam, have penned an impassioned letter addressed to President Droupadi Murmu, imploring her immediate intervention to quell the escalating tensions within their institution. Triggered by the tragic suicide of a third-semester electrical engineering student, Koj Buker, the campus has become a hotbed of turmoil and anguish.

In their open letter, the students outline their deepening concerns and demand the resignation of the Dean of Academics, citing his alleged involvement in the student’s suicide. The missive also criticizes the college administration, blaming it for exacerbating the crisis and fostering distress among the student body.

The tragic death of Koj Buker, who took his own life after academic struggles and administrative hurdles, has ignited widespread outrage among the student community. The letter further calls for proper compensation for Buker’s family and safeguards for protesting students, as they contend that the administration is responsible for the turmoil. The students’ plea underscores the urgency of the situation and their call for justice and reform within NIT Silchar.
