The VC had appealed to students to exercise restraint and maintain dignity in the wake of the developments. A peace march was also taken out in the campus led by the Vice Chancellor. Teaching staff and students also participated in the march.

Hasan went to meet the HRD minister at his residence to apprise him of all that's been happening within the premises of Jamia University. Incidentally, the Jamia University named its distance learning center after the HRD minister in May last year.
