The students were incensed after they found the blamed student in the study hall in infringement for an agreement with the administration that he would be removed from the college.

The students got hold of the denounced and began whipping and kicking him, leaving him harmed.

However, vice chancellor Dr Tasleem Hussain got him freed from the students and took him to his office. Later, the VC called the police to the campus to control the situation

Soon afterwards, the anti-riot police along with armoured personnel carriers reached the university, where the enraged students had besieged the VC’s office.

They demanded that either the administration expel him from the university or they would kill him.

Later, the students closed all gates of the university and said they won’t open the gates unless a notification for the expulsion of the alleged blasphemer was issued.

Succumbing to the pressure, the vice chancellor issued a notification expelling the student from the varsity, after which the gates were opened by the protesting students.

The students checked each police vehicle for the presence of the student before allowing it to leave the campus.

After the blasphemy controversy arose last month, the suspect was sent to prison on the orders of the deputy commissioner.
