In another shocker at Assam University of Barak Valley in Assam, activists of the Assam University Students Union locked up the Vice Chancellor’s chamber on Thursday evening.
The chamber was locked up at around 7 pm by irate volunteers of the varsity students’ body.
The students were protesting against withdrawal of long leave granted to Samira Behera, a professor of the university against whom case of plagiarism and illegally promoting himself is pending.
The students’ body while seeking an explanation from the Vice Chancellor earlier on Thursday found that his long leave was withdrawn on September 19 with the approval from the Vice Chancellor while the court had asked for citing reasons why he was put on long leave on September 26.
In protest against this act of the Vice Chancellor, activists of the students’ body had put the Vice Chancellor virtually under house arrest and did not allow him to leave the campus.
