The Banaras Hindu University on Saturday turned out to be a violence ground after police lathicharged on the protesting students against alleged victim shaming by BHU administration. The lathicharged took its form after some hours of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the city of Varanasi. If reports are to be believed, then it has been reported that the police did not even spare girls which was just inhuman. The girls even claimed that they were abused and even beaten. The protests took place inside the campus when girls of Triveni hostel held a 13 hour long demonstration.

The students were protesting in front of the gate against the university administration and hostel management. A student from the first year of the hostel was allegedly touched appropriately by three bikers near the Kala Bhawan within the BHU campus on Thursday, when she shouted for help the guards did not came forward for help. When she help herself and complained the warden and the chief proctor about the incident, instead of helping her they began shaming her.

Now a heavy police force have been brought to control the situation. The police was too earlier not eager to solve the issue but after a serious negotiations with the students they came to resolving grounds.
