Aligarh: Noting that any major disruption in the examination schedule will damage the career prospects of students, AMU Vice Chancellor Prof P K Abdul Azis on Tuesday said that a road map for reopening of the varsity will be announced this week.

He also said that a high level enquiry will be conducted into the violence.

The AMU was shut down indefinitely on Saturday following clashes between two groups of students that left 12 of them injured.

"I am fully aware that any major disruption in the examination schedule will lead to incalculable damage to the career prospects of a large number of students. It is my earnest endeavour to work out a revised examination schedule to safeguard the interests of our students," Azis said.

Azis said that the University had already decided that all entrance examinations for different courses would be held as per original schedule.

The VC said that 98 per cent of hostels have been vacated by yesterday evening and the entire process was carried out in a peaceful manner.

Referring to the allegation that some factions within the varsity administration were deeply involved in the ongoing regional politics within the student community, Azis said that he had received some reports to this effect.

"I plan to institute a high level time bound enquiry by some eminent and impartial persons into the incidents of April 29. If any member of my administration is found guilty of any lapse then he will not be spared," he said.

When asked why University administration has not lodged an FIR yet, Prof Azis said that a report would be lodged soon and the guilty would be identified with the help of the CCTV cameras.

"There was nothing illegal in the procedure of closing the University," the VC said, adding that after students union elections certain "disgruntled and mischievous elements" became active in the campus.

"These elements took advantage of the restoration of democratic right at the campus and started flexing their muscle power. Last week's violence was fallout of such disruptive elements," he said.
