After the reports of IIT Kanpur forcing the students to leave hostels surfaced, the institute issued a statement denying the allegations. It claimed that the reports of students being forced to leave the campus in the middle of the pandemic “are totally incorrect”.
The official statement read “The fact of the matter is that no stone has been left unturned with regards to the safety and security of the students during the pandemic. In fact, 80 per cent of the students are still functioning from their respective residences and these include the students of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-year undergraduate courses and some students in the final year undergraduate courses and masters and doctoral courses as well.”
