Karnali, Surkhet, Birendranagar

Students, who passed the entrance exam last February, from the Midwestern University School of Law padlocked the University demanding admission on March 26. Out of 190 participants, only 45 passed the entrance test. The new admission program was postponed after the failed students demanded re-examination alleging fraud and irregularities in the entrance examination.

Protesting students demanded immediate admission of the candidates who have passed the entrance examination and resumption of their studies. The admission should have been done between March 7 and 10.
