New Delhi, April 17 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Friday stayed the suspension of Devansh Mehta, student of St Stephen’s college who was barred from attending classes for launching an online magazine. In a writ petition filed before Delhi High Court, Devansh Mehta sought “quashing of the order banning/suspending publication of the St Stephen’s Weekly, stay on the suspension order and restraining the principal from taking any further action against him”.Mehta, a third-year Philosophy student and editor of the banned e-zine, on Wednesday was suspended till April 23 after a one-man inquiry committee appointed by the principal found him guilty of violating disciplinary norms of the college. Mehta has also requested in his petition that he be awarded the Rai Saheb Banarsi Das Memorial Prize, for which he was earlier selected by the college faculty before being later dropped from the list in the wake of the controversy.
