KARACHI: The Institute of Business Administration (IBA) has suspended one of the students involved in a viral video of a party held on campus for a year, while another student's entry on the premises of the varsity has been revoked. 

A statement issued by IBA said that the varsity's Student Conduct Committee "investigated" the matter related to the viral video on the directives of its Executive Director Akbar Zaidi. 

"Following the findings of the committee, one of the students involved in the matter has been suspended for one year and the second student has been barred from entering the IBA premises revoking campus access, revoking hostel access, and access to any other institutional facilities and services for the rest of the academic year," said the statement.

The university "strongly" condemned the "activity which is against the norms, ethics, rules and regulations" of the institution and said that it "will take appropriate action whenever IBA's Code of Conduct is breached".

"The executive director has instructed the management to ensure that our student Code of Conduct is strictly followed in letter and spirit. All social and musical events at the IBA premises have been put on hold until further notice," said the statement.

The university also shared that Zaidi has also called a Board of Governors meeting to apprise the members of the developments. 

Earlier this week it was reported that an "inappropriate" video of a programme went viral in which some students participated in a party at IBA's Karachi campus. 

Following the incident, a large number of emails were sent to the administration by IBA teachers and alumni, strongly condemning such activities.
