Delhi School of Journalism students were earlier asked to call off the protest on 29th August 2018 by the Proctor who promised coming up with solutions by 14th September 2018 but when the Proctor met protesting students on 14th September 2018,they were told¬†that all their demands would be met within an years time as nothing can be done to speed up the process.
The students started the protest again from 17th September 2018.They allege that they were walking towards the VC office through Gate No. 5 when they were blocked by the security guards and Delhi Police who in the name of stopping, manhandled them.The students allege that even female students were manhandled by male police officers with one of the students being detained at the police station for more than six hours being asked to call off the protest.
Now the students have decided to sit on an indefinite hunger strike until and unless DU Vice Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi comes to meet the students with solutions to their problems.
Meanwhile,a notice has been released by the college which mentions that protesting would result in disciplinary action.
