New Delhi: The Delhi University on Saturday formed a 7-member committee to investigate the ruckus outside the Arts Faculty building over the screening of a BBC documentary on PM Modi.
The committee, headed by DU Proctor Rajini Abbi, has been asked to submit its report to Vice Chancellor Yogesh Singh by 5 pm on January 30.
In a notification, the university said the vice-chancellor has constituted the committee to enforce discipline and maintain law and order on the campus.
“The Committee may specifically look into the incident of the 27th of January, 2023 which occurred outside the Faculty of Arts and opposite gate No. 4, University of Delhi,” the notification said.

A commotion erupted at the Delhi University on Friday as students attempted to screen the controversial BBC documentary, even as police and the university administration intervened to scuttle the move.
Students affiliated with the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) were detained from the Delhi University’s Arts Faculty and a heavy police deployment was maintained in the North Campus.
