Students raise security concerns on BU campus

Students raise security concerns on BU campus

 A delegation of students visited Jnanabharathi police station on Friday, demanding better security measures on Jnan­a­bharathi campus of Bangalore University.

The students sought additional security on the campus, especially near hostels. They found it difficult to move around in the night. Incidents of petty crimes were also on the rise. Though the cops assured them of intensifying patrolling, they also stated that there was neither a plaint nor a case registered.

Vice-Chancellor of Bangalore University, Prof Thimme Gowda, who also visited the police station, said an attempt-to-theft incident on Thursday night had created anxiety among the students. He said, “There was an attempt to snatch mobile phone from a few students were walking on the campus. The students managed to nab two miscreants, who were handed over to the police. The students expressed their ire against the police who had let them go, on Friday. They also grew furious when an official charged that one among them could have been involved in the incident.”

Morning walkers start as early as 4 am and petty thieves are ready to strike, the students complained and urged the University officials not to allow vehicles belonging to walkers inside the campus.
