The Allahabad High Court said that students take admissions in universities for the purpose of education and not indulge in protests.
By an order, the National Human Rights Commission was requested to hold an inquiry and submit a report before the Court. Needful was done. Copy of the inquiry report was handed over to the counsel for the State to respond to the recommendations made.
The division bench of the Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice J.J. Munir said that the recommendations in paragraph ‘c’ pertain to a direction to the Director General, CRPF for RAF to show utmost professionalism in dealing with such situations.
The court stated that it has no doubt that our paramilitary forces are well equipped to deal with such situations and are being regularly updated.
The bench observed that the direction in paragraph ‘f’ is to Aligarh Muslim University to establish mechanism for better communication with the students’ fraternity so that they are not influenced by outsiders.
The court said that the communication channels should always remain open. But equal responsibility is also of the students that they do not fall in the trap of unscrupulous persons operating outside the University to disturb peace there.
The court added that educational Institutions have to maintain discipline. The students take admissions in Universities or any educational Institution for the purpose of education and not indulge in these kinds of activities, which brings bad name to the great educational Institutions.
