Published on 27 March, 2016 at 3:47 pm By

The Hyderabad Central University has informed the Andhra Pradesh State Human Rights Commission (APSHRC) that human rights of the students were not violated during the developments at the varsity this week.

The spokesperson of Aam Aadmi Party’s Telangana unit, PL Vishweshwar Rao had filed a petition before the APSHRC, alleging that Hyderabad Central University authorities closed the hostels and denied food, water, electricity and internet to the students following protests over resumption of duty by the Vice Chancellor Appa Rao Podile on March 22.

The commission had sought a report from the vice-chancellor on March 31.

Earlier, Hyderabad university registrar M Sudhakar in his report before the APSHRC said that the complaint against the vice-chancellor was “false motivated’. He said there is no truth in the allegations raised against the Vice-Chancellor. The registrar said that none of the hostels were closed and not a single student was evicted from hostel.

The report by Sudhakar said:

“While the vice chancellor is sparing no effort to restore normalcy on the campus, rumours, as mentioned in the complaint, are being spread to cause unrest in the University”.

It also said that water supply and internet  facility were never disconnected but there was “temporary” disruption.

A note submitted before the APSHRC about the incidents of March 22 said that after conclusion of recording of depositions of various stakeholders by the Commission of Inquiry appointed by the Ministry of Human Resource Development on March 21, the vice chancellor rejoined on March 22.

“When the vice chancellor was holding a meeting with the local members of the Executive Council at the VC’s Lodge (his official residence), a mob vandalised the personal property of the vice chancellor and that of the University besides manhandling and roughing up the security staff”.

The note said that the timely intervention of the students of the Life Sciences department and some non-teaching staff, who formed a protective security cordon, the Vice Chancellor and other faculty members would have been brutally assaulted.

It further added “the brutality of actions of mob and slogans raised by them to extent of killing the VC, it can be gauged that their intention was to cause physical harm to the VC.”
