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.
