AMU VC appeals to students to attend classes from Jan 30, appear in exams


ANI General News
Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) Vice Chancellor Tariq Mansoor has appealed to all to maintain peace on the campus and requested students to appear in the examinations and attend classes from January 30.
"Already 18 days have gone without any academic activity," said Mansoor in a statement.
"The recent protests against CAA were peacefully conducted between Dec 11 and Dec 14 last year. On December 15, unfortunate incidents occurred. I have already expressed regrets for the injuries suffered by the students and the inconvenience caused to the students to vacate hostels on short notice due to the preponement of winter vacations," adds the statement.
"The incidents of 15 Dec are being investigated by the NHRC. The University has also constituted a fact-finding committee," said the VC.
Some persons blatantly disturbed the Republic Day function on January 26, which is a serious offence as the RD is a national festival and above politics," further reads the statement.
"We have already constituted two committees to look into the matter of FIR, compensation to injured students, the release of confiscated vehicles and the university administration will provide all help to the innocent persons," said Mansoor.
"We have rescheduled the leftover examination from Jan 27 but some misguided persons including some outsiders are not allowing examinations to be held and are locking the examination centre, departments and physically preventing students to appear in the examination," says the statement further.
The Vice-Chancellor has also held a meeting with the District Magistrate and the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) in the wake of the emerging situation.
