Aligarh (Uttar Pradesh), Jan 15 The Vice-Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), Prof Tariq Mansoor said that the university will file an FIR against the UP police for entering varsity hostel without due permission and the violence that killed two students and injured several.

On December 15, the vice-chancellor reportedly gave police permission to enter the campus ‘to maintain law and order’ after an attempt to prevent students from taking out a protest march in solidarity with Jamia Millia University students resulted in violence at its gates.

The gun battle left an expelled student dead on Saturday night while another youth, who was injured in the clash, succumbed to injuries in hospital today, AMU spokesperson Rahat Abrar said.

The V-C said that the police were given permission to restore peace at the campus and not enter the residential hostels.

“The police have crossed the mandate given to them by entering the university hostel,” the vice chancellor said in a statement.

The police action in one of the university hostels had resulted in severe injuries to students.
