Aligarh Muslim University’s Vice-Chancellor Tuesday received injuries after being hit by a car,which,the university spokesperson claimed,was a deliberate attempt to harm him.

Lt Gen (Retd) Zameer Uddin Shah was on his way to the office on a bicycle when a red Alto hit him,said AMU spokesperson Rahat Abrar,adding the car driver deliberately tried to push the V-C to the extreme end of the road in front of the university guest house number 2.

The V-C recently started using bicycle to commute within the campus as a drive to popularise cycling following the ban on motorcycles at all boys’ hostels in the university.

Shah was rushed to J N Medical College Hospital where the doctors said he has fractured his fourth and fifth ribs while the knee of the left leg has been badly bruised.

The V-C’s gunner,Irfanuddin,who was on another bicycle behind him,lodged an FIR with the Civil Lines police station.
