WBHRC asks for guidelines in Educational institutes

By Pti

In the backdrop of attack on Presidency University in April this year, the West Bengal Human Rights Commission has asked the state government to formulate guidelines within two months for dealing with cases of unlawful activities by the students in educational institutions.

"The State Government should formulate suitable guidelines for dealing with the cases of unlawful activities by the students in educational institutions," the West Bengal Human Rights Commission said in its recommendation.

The WBHRC also noted in its report that the police was inactive, had miserably failed to do its duty and failed to maintain law and order in the University.

"Even though law is clear, such guidelines are required to be made as police often fail to discharge their duties according to law to tackle unlawful activities by students in educational institutions," it said in its recommendation.

"It must be remembered that the existing infrastructure in our educational institutions are inadequate and we can ill afford to deplete them further. These guidelines should be framed by the State Government within two months from the date of communication of the order," it added.
