Several students have been hurt at the ongoing protest in Banaras Hindu University. The protest main agenda is the recent alleged sexual harassment with the students. The violation which started on 21st September, 2017 Thursday after few female students sat outside the college gate on ‘Dharna’, demanding to meet the Vice-chancellor, Professor G C Tripathi, who even later refused to come to meet the students, after saying, ‘I don’t want to discuss the matter on streets.’ Saturday got more fire when seven students including girls and two journalists were highly injured in the police lathi-charge.
Though the police took the situation in control, a lot of beating took place. The students also tried to enter the V-C’s house in the mid-night but were later barred. The students who got more fire had the issue that the guard dint react on Thursday when three boys on a motorcycle harassed a student while she was returning to her hostel in Triveni complex. The guards who were just 100 metered to her, dint came up instead stood like fools. The warden when told about the issue, instead of taking the issue seriously, questioned the reason for coming late to the hostel. This gave a boost to the anger and they started the protest.
As per the students, the 2700 acres campus lacks the availability of CCTV surveillance, street lights seem not to work at the late hours, guards not on board and any outsider is free to get in and out. The college which will remain closed till October 3rd, 2017 is expected to come with more protest today in Delhi.
