Sambalpur univ students go on a rampage demanding online semester exam
SAMBALPUR [Maha Media]: The situation turned so violent that the police had to resort to lathi-charge to disperse the agitating students. Vice-Chancellor of the varsity, Sanjiv Mittal said, "At around 12 noon, we heard a high-intensity sound, as if a bomb has exploded outside the administrative building.
"When we went outside to see what had happened, we saw that some youths were ransacking the administrative building. They wanted to meet the vice-chancellor. "When I talked to them, they handed me a memorandum and said that they wanted the examination to be held in online mode. I told them that we could discuss it in the office. But they refused to cooperate and continued ransacking.
"Subsequently, we informed the police. When police chased them away, they went on vandalising whatever came on their way while escaping. We have also lodged a complaint with the police in this regard," the VC said. The irate students broke air coolers, table, chairs, reception desk, and window glasses among many other things of the administrative building.
