The vice-chancellor's remarks came after four student leaders of the university were arrested two days ago for allegedly creating unrest at the campus, following which police personnel and Rapid Action Force (RAF) were deployed at all the entry points.

Following the incident, the university administration filed two separate complaints with the Aligarh police, seeking FIRs against the journalists for entering the campus without permission, and against unidentified miscreants for indulging in arson and unlawful activities.
