BHU VC attitude shameful says women Commission

Varanasi, Oct 6 (UNI) The National Commission of Women will issue summons to Banaras Hindu University (BHU) Vice-Chancellor Prof Girish Chandra Tripathi because his attitude towards agitating students was shameful, said NCW Working President Rekha Sharma here today.
Taking suo moto cognisance of the recent incidents of violence in BHU premises, Ms Sharma reached here to investigate the matter.
Addressing media after assessing the situation, Ms Sharma said Prof Tripathi should have come forward to deal such a sensitive matter but he relied on others.
“Has the professor listened to the grievances of girl students, the matter would not have escalated,” she added.
Ms Sharma expressed the view that the students protest spun out of control because it had been hijacked by some outsiders. “The irresponsible behaviour on the part of VC led to baton charge on girl students,” she alleged.
She said that concerned parties have given their statements. “Prof Tripathi, too, was called for giving his statement, but he did not come. Even his mobile was unanswerable,” she added.
“Now summons will be issued to Prof Tripathi and he has to be present before the commission” Ms Sharma said.
NCW working president assessed the security arrangements of girls’ hostels and women colleges on BHU campus.
It may be recalled that after a molestation incident in BHU premises on September 21, girls had staged a protest at the main entrance of the university next day. Some violent incidents took place on September 23 and the agitation escalated. Police had filed FIR against 1000 unknown persons in the matter.
