Trainee journalist accuses DU deputy proctor of heckling her

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A trainee journalist of a newspaper was allegedly heckled by a University deputy proctor, who refuted the allegations, saying it as a case of mistaken identity.

Deputy Proctor Swasti Alpana, against whom the allegations were raised, said she mistook the trainee journalist for a University Student's Union (DUSU) member, who was clicking her photographs without her permission.

"I remember all regular journalists who visit the campus and this one was not carrying any identity card and I mistook her for DUSU member who was trying to click my photographs without my permission," Alpana said.

Another journalist who witnessed the entire incident alleged that despite informing them about our identity, two deputy proctors including Swasti Alpana never stopped heckling at the trainee journalist.

"The trainee was trying to take photographs of ABVP-led DUSU members who were breaking a few pots. The deputy proctor saw this and snatched the phone and started screaming at the her," the journalist alleged.

The DUSU today visited dean's office demanding ways to resolve issue of 400 final year B.Com. Students who had failed in Computer Applications practical examination.

After the discussions, the members of the students' union allegedly broke flower pots and vandalised the property for delaying the issue.
