HYDERABAD: The University of Hyderabad (UoH) on Monday  lodged a complaint with the police against  20 unidentified persons for entering the campus without permission and threatening the students during the ‘Kiss of Love’ solidarity protest on Sunday.

Jupalle Ramesh, Inspector, Gachibowli confirmed the complaint from University’s registrar and said “a case has been booked for intrusion and objectionable behaviour on the campus.” 

Though the outsiders, who tried to interrupt the solidarity meet for ‘Kiss of Love’ are yet to be identified, the students alleged that they were the members of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) and the joint secretary of  the students union, who is a representative of Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP), facilitated them into the campus.

Vincent Benny, president of the student union said, the ‘’joint secretary of the union accompanied the outsiders into the campus.” he added.

However, the officials formed a committee consisting of faculty members, two representatives from the students union including president and general secretary and a representative from the Committee Against Sexual Harassment (CASH) to probe into the issue and submit a report.

Prof. I. Ramabrahmam, Registrar of UoH said “Any action against students will be taken only if they are proven guilty in the report of the inquiry committee. ‘’

Meanwhile the ABVP unit of the UoH dismissed the allegations of their link with the BJYM members entering the campus. Vikas Aditya, an MA student and member of ABVP said  ‘’the joint Secretary was only talking to them when security staff stopped them at the main gate. He did not bring them inside and we have no objection whatever  action the university takes against them.”

However the inquiry committee will submit its report in two weeks. Any action will depend solely on the report, said Prof. Haribabu, pro-vice-chancellor, UoH.
