HYDERABAD: The indefinite ‘occupy administration building’ taken up by University of Hyderabad students entered its second day on Wednesday.

The protest was launched by Joint Action Committee for Social Justice-UoH, demanding expulsion of five Dalit research scholars to be revoked. More than 30 students occupied UoH’s administration building lobby and did not allow staff personnel to enter the premises.

A statement from the varsity read that officials’ appeals to allow the employees  and present the issue when UoH Vice Chancellor returns on Thursday, did not yield any result. 

The research scholars are not allowed to enter hostels till completion of their course, and they are not allowed to enter administration building as well as other common places in groups.

The statement said that the above decisions were taken following findings of Proctorial Board, and recommendations of the Sub-Committee of Executive Council.

Following the decisions, four out of the five research scholars started to camp on the university premises from January 4.

A member of the JAC, S Munna, said that the ‘occupy administration building’ will continue till expulsion of the research scholars is revoked.
