Delhi University All Set To Ensure Safety Of Students In The Holi Season

We’ve seen students complaining all across the university against the misbehaviour of other students during festival times like holi. As a result, it creates an atmosphere of unease and apprehension in and outside the campus.

In order to prevent this, the authorities of Delhi University has asked students to refrain from playing Holi in an objectionable manner with wet colours, balloons or pistons in any of its educational territory and decided to set up control rooms in both north and south campus to receive complaints from students during the festival. The university in its advisory council said anti-ragging and anti-eve-teasing provisions would be applicable in case students are found to be harassed during the festival on March 21.

Security guards should be posted at the gates to check the identity cards of visitors and students,‚Äù the University said.
