AMU law and order deteriorating, say teachers

Aligarh, March 26 (IANS) Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) teachers have expressed concern over deteriorating law and order situation on the campus.


In a resolution they have asked the vice chancellor to stem “the rot as this is casting a shadow over the unblemished image of the protectors of our nation’s frontiers and guarantors of its integrity.”

The teachers’ body said two recent incidents had alarmed them as the trend demonstrated the growing feeling of insecurity on the campus despite “the presence and control of distinguished erstwhile members of the services.”

S. Mustafa Zaidi, secretary of the Aligarh Muslim University Teachers Association, said a resolution passed unanimously by the executive committee had highlighted two recent incidents.

“One, the condemnable incident of firing, that resulted in the reportedly total loss of vision with over hundred pellets in the brain of a brilliant M.Tech. student Kaleem Ahmad, who had successfully competed in the Railway Engineering Services in North India and was about to join, is beyond horror,” said the teachers.

“The second incident of the attempted abduction of a university student (reportedly a case of mistaken identity) by police within the campus also shows the extremely sorry state of relations between the Civil Administration and the University,” they said.

“The broad daylight murder in September 2015 of another student Alamgir for which we all demanded a CBI enquiry, remains unsolved.”

The executive committee said it condemns these and similar incidents and is forced to question all claims of excellence by AMU when the lives, liberty, security of the students is at stake.
