Police action sparks mass exodus of hostellers at MU

Imphal, May 27: Alleging constant disturbance and harassment by the security personnel in the aftermath of the killing of Prof Islamuddin of the Manipur University, students started vacating their respective hostels since Thursday.
About 600 students from the boys hostel number 1, 2 and 3 left their hostels after the Vice Chancellor failed to give assurance on the action by the security personnel.
Speaking to media persons in this connection a hosteller, who is also spokesperson of the Manipur University Students’ Union (MUTSU), Tingjinlung Panmei, informed that a joint meeting was held between the MU authority including the Vice Chancellor and the hostellers, during which the students demanded an end to the follow up action by the security personnel which had caused constant disturbance and harassment day and night to the hostellers.
He also informed that this was despite the fact that the semester examination was going on.
Panmei further stated that the Vice Chancellor informed that he was helpless in the matter as the police action was entrusted by the home department and instead asked the students to leave the hostel if they felt insecure and disturbed.
While expressing his disappointment over the response of the VC, Panmei questioned why the VC was powerless in spite of the fact that MU had been converted into a Central university run by the Central government. The students also asserted that they would return to the university only after normalcy was brought in the campus.
Meanwhile, the MU authorities have postponed its ongoing examination and are likely to reschedule it by June.
On the other hand, at least 13 hostellers of the MU who were picked by the security personnel for interrogation were remanded to police custody till June 2 after they were produced at the concerned court on Thursday. (IFP)
