Massive students protest erupted at the main gate of Benaras Hindu University (BHU) on Friday morning. Students of the university gathered in large number demanding strict check to curb the menace of eve-teasing.

On Thursday, evening a student was molested by bike-borne miscreants near Bharat Kala Bhawan in the university premises. The victim screamed when the incident took place but the security personnel present at the spot did not take cognizance of the crime and ignored it.

The victim informed the hostel warden. When the Vice-Chancellor got information about the incident he visited ‘Triveni Hostel’ to investigate the matter. On Friday, a large number of students gathered at the main gate of the University and blocked the main gate.

The agitated students raised slogans against the Proctorial board, the angry students also demanded that the restrictions imposed on the women regarding timings in the hostel should be taken back and their safety and security should be imposed.
