Barkatullah University vice-chancellor MD Tiwari said on Monday that action would be taken against those who asked the girl inmates to vacate hostels during vacations on Diwali.
"I always work in favour of students to provide them maximum facilities in the form of scholarships and other ways. The BU administration had decided to shift the girls in Nivedita hostel for their security, but I didn't issue any kind of instructions to anyone to vacate the girls hostels," Tiwari told HT.
