    Threats by students on account of banned smoking and drinking in college hostel?

    I am chief warden of a private engineering college. Here the college has banned smoking and drinking in the hostel. But many students do that on regular basis inside the hostel at night. As a result many students are facing problems and have complained. On that basis when I inspected I caught red handed a group doing all those activities. But now, they are giving me life threat and giving threat that they will hurt me if I take any step against them. What shall I do now?What step should I take against them?

    Hi friend,
    Hope you are in good health and good state of mind!
    It's always a treat and fun to answer your queries.
    I also appreciate the confidence that you have shown in us!


    Whatever these students are doing is completely against the rules of the hostel.
    This is very wrong.
    According to the rules,no student should indulge in activities such as smoking,drinking or taking drugs in the hostel.


    You should immediately tell about all this to the Warden of the hostel.
    Though they have threatened but don't worry.
    They have done so just to create a fear in your mind that if you report the matter,they'll harm you.
    They are actually afraid and baffled since you caught them red handed.
    Also talk to these guys separately and tell then they are ruining their career by doing such acts.
    Make them realize that their parents have sent them to the hostel and the college in hope that they'll become a successful human being in the future.
    They are also playing with their parent's feelings.
    Make them realize that whatever they are doing is completely wrong and tell them that they should give up doing such activities.
    Tell them that smoking and drinking is very injurious to health and every day thousands of people loose their lives due to this bad habit.
    Present some example before them of deaths that have been caused due to drinking and smoking.
    I am sure they'll realize their fault and will give up all these bad habits.



    I hope I have answered all your doubts.
    It was a pleasure answering your queries.
    Hope that you'll come up with some more challenging queries!
    Till then,take care.
    Bye!

    Dear Aspirant,

    These thinhs are very common now a days.It is quite natural to irritate & get angry when some one is banned of doing something againt his/her will.But you should stand with the mangement & for majority of the students.I don't think majority of the students are drinkers & against studies.Only few of them might be drinkers.
    You should not affraid of them.In order to control them,first of all try to convince them one by one politely & at the same time giving them warning for future.Also you should take the matter to the head of the college & request to take action,but before taking any drastic action,make them to accept their mistakes & get a bond in paper stating that they won't repeat it in future & if any of them do so,one will have to deposit so much penalty amount & or they may be ousted from the college & if are not accepting their fault,you can send a notice to their parents,apart from threatning to lodge FIR against them.But I don't think they will resist so much.On the contrary,they will accept their faults & they will sign the bond for not repeating it in future.
    If you don't take the matter to the head & don't take action againt them,the situation will be worst to you.The students who are badly affected with it,they will go to the head of the college with a complain against you,In that case you may be called for explanation or you may directly be suspended because it will create a bad impression against the management of the college for which you are held resposible.

    So you must face the threats boldly.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok

    Dear friend you are a warden of college hostel these are the common procedures often indisciplined students' do, to tackle them really a tough question.Now how you are to proceed to tackle such odd things.A group of stedent at mid night break's the hostel norms/breaks the peace of other students and when you go to them, they threat you.

    procedures' to tackle indiscipline hostel students.

    1.The students'who complained to you against the group of odd students who raise every night chaois and disturb all by way of drinking and odd doings.

    2.First of all you receive the complaint and tell them to submit the said complaint with signatures.

    3.Try to accumulate evidences against the odd students to charge them under legal way.

    4.When they threat you regarding your life risk or else,you should not go first time to police station to complain against them alone(as a warden) try to solve the problem peacefully.

    5.The whole matter you inform to the Principal and to the General Secretary of the college.

    6.I think they will call meeting with all students and of course they will adivice the indiscipline student to stop such doings immediately other wise the college authority can do many legal action like a) For this purpose your guardian to be informed.2) Memo to be served against the group of indiscipline students.3)At any time for your odd doing a complaint to be lodged to the nearest police station.

    If such right action is taken then I think group of indiscipline students never try to do anything against anybody and they are bound to apology to the college warden and they will keep promise and be refrained from doing such things.So, I think we can bring peace with united opinion rightfully.

    Thank you,

    Hello,

    You should immediately bring this issue to the notice of the college authorities.As a student they are bound to abide by the rules and regulations imposed on them by the college authorities and hostel.They cannot do what ever they like and giving life threats to hostel warden is not acceptable at anycost.The college authorities should immediately enquire into the matter,call the parents of such students and suspend them permanently.Otherwise they will rotten the college and hostel atmosphere and create nuisance for others.Apart from this,colled should should also take initiative to strengthen the safety and security aspect of the hostel surroundings.

    Re: Threats by students on account of banned smoking and drinking in college hostel?

    Hi aspirant

    I think such students should be taught a lesson and should be taught proper manners. I think as the chief warden it is your responsibility to maintain proper discipline within the hostel premises and thus to take care of the students complaints and thus help them. I think if the students have gone to the extent of giving you life threats, then you should not keep quiet and complain to the hostel as well as the college managemnt regarding this matter.

    Tell them that there are a group of students who were caught red handed by you for smoking within the hostel premises. When you reprimanded them for the same, they threatened to hurt you and also gave you life threats if you complain against them. Also you have been receiving many complaints against them from the other hostel students too. Smoking is bad for their health and also for the other students who inhale the smoke passively.

    Such kind of behaviour should not be tolerated and you request the management to take disciplinary action against them. I am sure your managemnt will certainly take the necessary steps in this direction and then you will also be relieved. Good luck friend

    Don't fear for complaining against illegal activities its your duty to make students follow the rules because as head of hostel its your responsibility that you ensure the hostel is free from all malpractices because don't lend your support to students who drink and smoking if you take them lightly then they will do other things next time if this issue becomes illegal then you will be held responsible for it if you participate or encourage bad then you will face bad situation this is a fact .. Immediately complain it to the college management ask their parents to come to college tell them and college authorities that they are giving life threats.. If necessary take police assistance be safe and secured from all these things

    hi
    you are the chief warden of the hostel, and you bear the responsibility of the discipline that has to be conducted in the hostel premises. Now, you need to be strict and take actions against the people who are doing wrong deeds in the hostel.
    And if they are giving you threats related to your life, then you should immediately inform this matter to the principal of the college, and moreover you should also file a complaint against the students in the police station near you and ask them to provide you the security as your life is in danger.
    Gud luck
