Response.Cookies["StudentCookies"].Value = null;
Response.Cookies["StudentCookies"].Expires = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-1);

To be sure, to be sure, to be sure... :laugh:
You are trying to use Request.Cookies.Value without checking it the cookie exists.

This is the correct check:
string roll = string.Empty;
// first check that cookie exists, if it does, use the value
if (Request.Cookies["StudentCookies"] != null) {
    roll = Request.Cookies["StudentCookies"].Value;

' if cookie wasn't present or the value is empty, redirect
if ( roll == string.empty)

Good luck.
