IIT Madras was recently caught in a controversy, after the hostel staff of the institute published details about finding used condoms inside a student\'s room on the public notice board.
According to The New Indian Express, the hostel staff had apparently conducted a surprise vigilance check at the men\'s hostel which infuriated many students at the campus.
They had apparently barged into the rooms of teh students and clicked pictures without any consent and then insulted the students.
The students claimed that it was a violation of their privacy and dignity. During the surprise check, the staff had found several banned items in the rooms like iron boxes, egg boiler, electric kettle, water cooler, mini fridge, water heater rod, etc. And in one room, the squad even found 20 cigarette butts, matchboxes and used condoms in dustbin.
Meanwhile, the Dean Students\' office has refuted all the allegations put forward by the students, "No hostel office has done this act of publishing student details on the notice board. The institute will inquire further about this deviation, if any at all."
