Kolkata: The gherao of the Vice Chancellor and registrar of Jadavpur University by protesting students here was on at midnight even as the varsity's students' body demanded a fresh probe panel to be set up to investigate the matter of the alleged sexual harassment of a girl student on its campus.

The students' union demanded a fresh probe panel and insisted that the gherao would not be lifted until some assurance was given in the matter.

Additional Commissioner of Police Debasish Roy along with a strong contingent of police rushed to the campus to control the situation but the impasse continued as the students could not be convinced till midnight to withdraw their agitation.

The vice chancellor is learnt to have slammed the gherao as “torture”. He said that the matter could be resolved through discussion.

Police said the students gheraoed VC Souvik Bhattacharya and registrar Pradip Ghosh to protest against the Aug.28 incident inside the campus at a boys' hostel and the delay in the investigation of the same.

The state government has appealed to the students to lift the gherao while education minister Partho Chatterjee said, “This is undemocratic, they must lift the gherao and talk with the authorities.”
