Aligarh Muslim University increases vigil after reports of illegal occupants in halls of residences

Aligarh: Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) Vice Chancellor, Professor Tariq Mansoor has asked provosts and wardens of various halls of residences to make frequent rounds for keeping a special vigil at their respective halls after reports of non-students, campus bound elements and suspended and expelled students using hostel accommodations by illegal means have been received.

The MTS staff deputed at the entrances of various University halls have been directed to be more watchful while checking identities of students staying in hostels. They have also been asked to maintain proper records of entries of students and visitors. The University has also asked the authorities of halls to affix allotment slips and photographs of students on the doors of rooms.

A notice issued by AMU Proctor, Prof M Mohsin Khan has asked the hall authorities to do random checking of students residing in the hostels. “Illegal occupants should be immediately handed over to the Proctor Office,” said Prof Khan.

He added that the residential wardens have also been asked to check the presence of outsiders in the common places of halls such as canteens, common rooms, reading rooms, sports grounds and dining halls.

“There should be proper monitoring of hostels with CCTV cameras and a weekly footage should be sent to the authorities,” said the AMU Proctor adding that the hall authorities should make sure that vehicles of resident members of halls should not only be parked at appropriate places, but they should make sure that these vehicles have campus passes and are registered with the Proctor Office.
