Banaras Hindu University girl shaves head in protest”

But, when the students became rigid police used force to disperse the gathering.

As they tried to enter the Vice Chancellor's residence and allegedly threw stones at police, the cops resorted to lathicharge to contain violence.

Hours after he left his constituency, a large number of Banaras Hindu University students protested against the alleged sexual harassment of a female student.

Meanhile, bowing to increaisng pressure form girl students, Chief Proctor Singh said, "V-C holds a dignified office and girl students may come to his office to meet him".

However, according to the report, the BHU administration denied that it ordered lathi-charge on the women.

Meanwhile, the BHU administration has alleged that the protests are political in nature and have been coordinated to match the timings of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Varanasi to damage the image of the university.

The victim informed the hostel warden. Some of the girls received serious injuries. Girls are not allowed to wear what they want to and have to report in their hostel latest by 8 pm while the boys' hostel has no curfew time.

The protesting girls have very simple demands which are considered as basic safety requirements of the campuses across the universities. Girls who enroll into the university have to get an undertaking signed from their parents that they will not participate in any form of protest or the like and if caught doing so they will be removed from the hostel. The chief proctor refused to take action and some officials allegedly tried to blame the student, wondering why she was out late in the evening, sources said. Around the same, the district police also charged towards the students who were sitting on the main gate. One of the students reportedly got her head tonsured. The victim also joined the demonstration and shaved off her hair in protest.

She claimed that she cried out for help but the security guards, who were a few meters away from her, ignored her.

Though, the complainant and the protesting girls have maintained that she was molested, the officials have referred to the incident as eve-teasing. "What better time for them", Mr. Tripathi said. The students demand that he come before us. Roshan Pandey, a third-year B.A student, who was a part of the protest, said: "We submitted our complaint to the VC through the delegation he sent but he has not appeared himself". Large number of students also started quitting the hostels for their home as the varsity is closed between till October 2 on behalf of festivities. "The movement will continue till then".
