Move after alleged molestation incident during a recent NSUI rally
Following an alleged incident of molestation on campus during a students' rally, the proctor office of Delhi University on Saturday issued a notice banning "all rallies and demonstration of any kind" on the campus "till further notice".
According to Professor C S Dubey, the Chief Election Officer for this year's Delhi University Students' Union polls, the university was informed about an alleged incident of molestation of a student of Indraprastha College near the Daulat Ram and Shri Ram College of Commerce on August 31.
He said, "While a case has not been registered with police, we came to know about the incident when some students of IP College approached the Vice-Chancellor over the issue. As a result, the university decided to take firm action and, hence, rallies have been banned for the time being."
The incident allegedly took place on Friday during a rally organised by NSUI.
"It is shameful that the incident took place despite the presence of a large number of policemen on campus," Dubey said.
Rival political party ABVP blamed the incident on the fact that NSUI had called a number of people from outside the campus to take part in their rally. Rohit Chahal, state secretary of ABVP, said, "NSUI's rally had a large number of outsiders. We have been advocating safety on campus and we demand that the culprits be nabbed soon and strict action be taken against them."
Expressing his disapproval over the university's decision to ban rallies for the time being, Chahal said, "The ban is wrong. It is the right of student to take out rallies."
NSUI, on the other hand, denied any knowledge of the alleged molestation incident. NSUI spokesperson Amrish Ranjan Pandey said: "We are not aware of any case being registered against NSUI activists. So, I am not aware of the incident."
