“The classes were held normally on Monday. The students who had left for their homes have returned,” the student added.

Another second year undergraduate course student said she was yet to join classes as her home was in Haryana and it will take some time for her to return. “My parents were concerned about my safety when I told them about the incident and the subsequent protests. However, since the university has reopened, I will now rejoin the classes as soon as possible.”

She added, “My parents are still concerned. But I cannot miss the classes. My parents have made queries with the university. Most students have returned and joined classes.”
