SYED AMJAD SHAH
Jammu, Mar 2: The University of Jammu on Tuesday was closed for an indefinite period following a violent clash, between police and college students, demanding ‘open choice’ in the three years under graduate courses within the Campus.
About 12 college students allegedly involved in damaging the varsity property were reportedly detained by police and who later filed an FIR against them.
Taking cognizance of the incident, Vice-Chancellor Prof Varun Sahni immediately ordered to close the campus.
“The campus was closed after the clash took place,” an official told Greater Kashmir, adding, “The vice-chancellor has said that, if employees and students in the campus are not safe than how campus can work smoothly.”
A high level meeting chaired by vice-chancellor was in progress when the reports last came in.
Report said that four employees of non-teaching staff were injured in the incident.
“University property was damaged in stone pelting,” eyewitnesses said.
