Demanding curfew-less nights for women's hostels, DU students to protest again

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A students' collective will on Wednesday hold an agitation at the Arts of the University to press for their demands including curfew-less nights for women.

The call by Pinjra Tod comes after the group held an all-night protest in the University on Monday and even blocked traffic on the as their talks with the proctor and deputy proctor of DU did not yield results.

Last week, the organisation had submitted a charter of demands to the of the University demanding removal of timings and allowing 24-hour entry into women's hostels, abolishing the concept of local guardians for students and keeping a provision for an emergency local contact.

The student's collective further demanded a new women's hostel for differently-abled students and the setting up of an internal complaint committee against sexual harassment in all colleges and institutions.

They had threatened to stage a protest if the demands were not met within a week.
