Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik today said a committee headed by the chief secretary has been constituted to go into the protest in the Banaras Hindu University campus over an alleged eve-teasing incident.

A number of students, including women, and two journalists were injured in a baton-charge by the police in the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) where a protest on Saturday night against an alleged eve-teasing incident turned violent.

"A committee has been constituted under the chief secretary. Necessary action will be taken on the basis of its report. The committee will see as to how the police had behaved and examine other aspects," he said.

Naik was responding to queries from mediapersons here about the incident. The governor described the incident as sad.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has already ordered a probe into the incident. In the wake of the violence, the university has advanced the puja holidays from tomorrow till October 2.

Earlier, the holidays were to have started from September 28. Violence erupted after some students, protesting against the alleged eve-teasing incident of Thursday, wanted to meet the Vice Chancellor at his residence on Saturday night, according to police and university sources.

A BHU spokesperson said some students wanted to "forcibly" enter the VC's residence but they were stopped by the security guards of the university.

Subsequently, there was stone pelting by "outsiders" who had joined the students.
Police then used batons to control the situation.
