BHU VC should act as responsible administrator: NCW

"Strict action will be taken against erring students and cops after the judicial inquiry", UP Minister and government spokesperson Srikant Sharma said in Lucknow.

CM orders judicial inquiry, while another report slams varsity.

"Rumours were spread that girls have been asked to vacate the hostels and those who were not involved in the protests also joined it", Tripathi told PTI.

Snubbing VC Girish Chandra Tripathi's theory of involvement of "outsiders" which caused the protest to escalate, she said, "The entire campus was on section 144 and lathicharge was done in the entire campus and none of the outsiders can get in".

Problems started at BHU when a first-year Fine Arts student was sexually harassed by 3 bike-borne assailants on the University campus and went to complain to the university authorities only to be met by victim-shaming as they blamed her for being outside hostel at odd hours.

"This protest was well organised by outsiders", Tripathi said.

The woman alleged that varsity security guards, about 100 metres from where the incident happened, did nothing to stop the men.

As Opposition parties targeted the ruling BJP in UP over the police action against the girl students on the campus, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah on Monday spoke to Mr Adityanath and asked him to address the issue at the earliest.

"He had also starkly said he knew how and what BA students study and they did not need libraries", the undergraduate student said. "They should keep away from holding agitations on campuses", he said.

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Tuesday issued notices to the Uttar Pradesh government and BHU Vice-Chancellor on inaction over eve-teasing complaint and harsh police action against students.

The NCW also cautioned the V-C.

NCW officials did not respond to queries about statutory measures being contemplated.

In an interview to a national daily, Tripathi said, "If we are going to listen to every demand of every girl we won't be able to run the university".
