The students were informed about their expulsion following an inquiry committee report which found them guilty.

College chairman, B N Chaudhary, said, "Out of the six students, two have been debarred for a period of one year while the rest four have been asked not to appear for the next semester examination." Mohit Kumar and Abhay Kumar, residents of Jamshedpur, Prashant Kumar, resident of Khunti district, Rajendra Murmu of Bokaro district, Abhishek Kumar of Giridih and Keshav Kumar of West Champaran district (Bihar) have been expelled from the college.

They have been expelled following the October 4 incident in which Rakesh Gupta, a first year mechanical engineering student, was hospitalized after he was assaulted and ragged by a group of second year students within the college premises. Subsequent to the incident, Gupta, a resident of Jamshedpur, lodged an FIR against the accused students at the Galudih police station and also registered a complaint with the Anti-Ragging Cell (ARC) in Delhi. Following the ARC directive, the college conducted an internal inquiry and found six students guilty .
