A Hansraj College student had a narrow escape in his final days at the university on Saturday night when plaster from ceiling of his hostel room fell on his bed.A similar incident happened a few months back in Daulat Ram College as well where during a lecture the ceiling fell down.
The incident took place around 10 PM when the student who is currently in final year was studying a few metres away from the bed.
“The portion of the ceiling,which collapsed was on the side where I place my pillow and sleep. Fortunately, I was studying at my desk and not sitting on the bed. Had I slept early on Saturday I would have been badly injured” said the student,who did not want to be identified.
The student has filed an official complaint with the hostel warden and the matter is under Principal now who has asked for a report from the contractor.
“Last year also,a similar incident had happened in another room. That time the chunk which fell was not very big but it has happened in the past and no repairs have taken place” said another student of the college.
The infrastructural woes at Delhi University are far from getting over and its time that authorities now spend money on the infrastructure of institutes as the campus is turning unsafe day by day.
