New Delhi: With Holi less than a week away,
Delhi University on Wednesday strengthened security arrangements in
the campus and its affiliated colleges to prevent any act of
hooliganism during the celebrations.

A strict vigil will be maintained around all colleges by
the police personnel, voluntary organisation, university`s
proctorial staff and security personnel to check any untoward
incident, especially against women, a release said.

"Anyone who indulges in acts of gross indiscipline and
causes harassment of any kind would be subject to strict
disciplinary action under provisions of University Ordinance
XV-B and XV-C," the release issued by Registrar`s Office said.

Moreover to check acts of hooliganism in buses, the
university has directed the DTC crews to take buses to nearest
police stations in case of such an incident.

The university has warned students that playing holi
during working hours would not be permitted in any educational
institution and entry to colleges would be strictly through
identity cards.

All principals, heads of the departments and provosts of
halls/hostels have been asked to be available at their
respective institutions to take care of any incident by
activating their disciplinary committees.

The police will deploy their personnel at strategic
positions around colleges. Mobile patrol squads will also be
pressed into service. There will also be special checks on
entry of guests in the hostel to prevent any outsider during
Holi festivities.
