AP High Court: No Central Forces in OU
The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Monday ordered the state government to withdraw all paramilitary and Special Forces deployed in the Osmania University campus immediately.
Justice L. Narasimha Reddy asked the state counsel to take steps to prevent the entry of police joint commissioner, P.S.R. Anjaneyulu into the campus.
The High Court also asked students not to disturb classes and exams and warned that they would be taken to task if they resort to acts of criminal intimidation or violence.
To keep peace in the university, the government should deploy an adequate number of civil police personnel in the university police station, the court said. They can take care of any untoward incident in OU, and Special Forces can be deployed with the Vice-Chancellor’s permission only when the situation goes out of control.
