Amidst outrage and nation wide protests continuing on the baton charge on girl students in Benaras Hindu University, BHU’s Chief Proctor O N Singh took moral responsibility for the violence at the varsity campus and tendered his resignation to Vice Chancellor G C Tripathi immediately after he returned from Delhi.
Singh’s resignation has been accepted by Tripathi, according to the report.
A high-level official report on the recent violence and arson in Banaras Hindu University (BHU) has reportedly noted that proper and timely communication with protesting girl students by the varsity administration could have nipped the problem in the bud and prevented it from escalating. On Tuesday, the BHU vice-chancellor, too, ordered a probe into the incidents headed by a retired HC judge.
The atmosphere on the campus on Tuesday was largely peaceful and deployment of police and PAC had been reduced as most students had left for their homes since the festival holidays had been advanced. The university will now open only on October 3.
