New Delhi: In connection to the e-zine issue of young blood Devansh Mehta, the Supreme Court on Friday stayed his suspension order. Mehta was suspended by the college on Wednesday for launching an online magazine.

Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court has sent a notice to the prestigious college of the Delhi University. Students were also protesting outside the college and said that they would continue it till the probe is complete.

The petitioner has prayed that Mehta’s suspension can irreversibly impact his career as Columbia Journalism School which has accepted him as a student might cancel the admission. The petitioner also stated that St Stephen’s Principal acted in a vindictive manner and stripped him of an important award.

The high court directed the college not to award one of the two awards till next date of hearing. Mehta, a third-year Philosophy student and editor of the banned e-zine, was suspended till April 23 after a one-man inquiry committee appointed by the principal Valson Thampu found him guilty of violating disciplinary norms of the college.
