The officials of the major education establishments on Jnana Bharathi campus of Bangalore University are meeting on Wednesday to review security arrangements.

Installation of surveillance cameras at strategic locations on the campus, setting up checkposts for verification of registration numbers of public vehicles entering the campus, physical checking of boot space in cars and bikes are some of the measures which are likely to be implemented. The meeting will be held at the university’s Administrative Office at 3 pm.

Registrar (Administration) B C Mylarappa has convened the meeting. The representatives from the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Sports Authority of India (SAI) and Institute of Social and Economic Change (ISEC) will participate in meeting.

“Officials from the Police Department will also attend the meeting. Some key decisions on beefing up security on campus will be taken. At the end of the day, educational institutions on campus have to come together to ensure such incidents do not happen. It our collective responsibility,” Mylarappa said.

According to NAAC Director H A Ranganath, Jnana Bharathi is the best environmental-friendly campus in the country. “It is undoubtedly an asset to the city. However, our prime focus should be illumination in the campus and robust patrolling of security forces,” he said adding that Saturday’s incident of a second year NLSIU student Masha (name changed) who was allegedly gang-raped was not NLSIU’s problem alone.
