UP CM Adityanath said proctorial board of the university should have taken timely measures to ensure that trouble did not escalate and nipped the problem in the bud.

"We had come to the Capital with a group some days ago".

Asserting that the main challenge is to maintain discipline on the campus, she stated that they were in process of fulfilling the demands of the student.

Varanasi administration has submitted a detailed incident report to Lucknow citing "lapses on part of campus administrators".

These quick developments are the result of protests that erupted on campus after a fine arts sophomore was groped on the way to her hostel last Thursday.

He is shown saying, "Teachers had called you for a discussion but you did not come".

Requesting anonymity, top government sources told Mail Today that campus administration, including the V-C, was reminded time and again against the growing resentment on the campus.


Sources added the students were demanding a meeting with the VC because they have alleged that 'whoever takes a complaint to his office is targeted'.

While the Union Ministry of Human Resources Development has not come forth on the happenings, it remains to be seen if any further heads will roll and whether campus protests will recommence when students get back to their hostels after the Dasara break on October 2.

The Banaras Hindu University (BHU) administration on Friday assured that an action would be taken against those found guilty as soon as the concerned committee probing the recent incident of molestation comes with its report.

"The DCW Chief Swati Maliwal in a letter to Prime Minister Modi asserted that "'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' campaign can not be a success if gender based security concern prevails on campus and hostel - an area that is considered to be a safe haven for burgeoning students who come from villages and far off places in pursuit of education". He said that in trying to talk about sexual harassment, the girl students "have put their modesty in the market".

Crime branch officials visited the BHU campus on Thursday and seized CCTV footage from September 21 to 24 to track the movement of outsiders.

'We are probing all the aspects of the incident and going throughCCTV footage, ' Nath said.
