rain semester 2012/2013 examination, the university
management has decided to shut down the university
â€œAlso, examinations have been put off till
further notice. With this decision, students are expected to
vacate the university premises until further notice.â€
This decision was contained in a bulletin, dated 23rd January,
Students of the institution had staged a protest on
Wednesday, 22nd, January over the closure of the portal but
the protest became violent on Thursday.

Violence doesnâ€™t resolve anything. I thought
students should know this and learn to dialogue at all times.
