Notable alumni[edit]


In 2010, the Government of India decided to derecognise 44 universities including JIIT.[51] However, this matter is still pending in supreme court of India. In its recent judgement supreme court of India directed University Grants Commission to conduct a fresh physical verification of infrastructure and faculty strength of deemed universities, which were black-listed by Tandon Committee. Hence not approved by AICTE.[52][53][54]

On 15 October 2015 an M. Tech first year student was stabbed inside the washroom. The incident took place when the victim left the hostel mess for the washroom. The victim was stabbed multiple times. She is recuperating from her injuries while police have launched a manhunt to nab the culprit. Clueless cops have questioned half a dozen people in connection with the case. Priyanka had gone for dinner in the mess at around 9.30 pm. After having dinner, she went to washroom on the first floor. Lights were switched off in the washroom and the attacker was already waiting. She was attacked as soon as she entered the washroom. "He stabbed her multiple times. Priyanka screamed for help and by the time other people rushed to the scene, the attacker had left," the police said.

After the attack, the victim was immediately rushed to Fortis hospital in Sector 62. A police team and senior police officials reached the scene. The police have picked up some samples from the scene. An FIR has been lodged at the Sector 58 police station.

Speaking about the crime, GB Nagar senior superintendent of police Kiran S said the victim was having dinner in the hostel mess. "It is a joint mess. Both boys and girls have dinner in the same mess, situated on the first floor. After dinner, when the victim left for washroom, an unidentified man attacked on her. He stabbed her and then fled the scene," Kiran S said.

When asked about any lead into the case, Kiran S said, "The police so far have not gained any important lead into the case. Manhunt is on to nab the culprits. We have questioned nearly half a dozen people into the case. There was no CCTV installed inside the mess or on the corridor of first floor," he added. [55]
