The disciplinary committee of Ramjas College will investigate violence and sloganeering that took place on February 21 and 22.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the staff council on Saturday. “The council condemned the violence and will submit the report the investigation so that appropriate measures could be taken,” said Rajendra Prasad, principal of the college.

The committee will also suggest steps to restore confidence among students and the staff.

Violence had erupted on the campus when two groups-- one led by Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), student wing of RSS, and the other comprising of Ramjas College students, teachers affiliated with left parties, and other students organisations, clashed on Wednesday.

The principal will address the students on Monday to reassure them of their safety in the college. He will also request for adequate police presence outside the college.

The college administration has been told to allow entry to the college strictly on the basis of I-cards to prevent outsiders from entering the institution.

Prasad, however, denied suggestions that the MHRD had asked for a report from the college.

HRD minister Prakash Javadekar has said that the government will sought a report from the university.
