The Lucknow bench of the high court expressed indignation when the DGP, Lucknow SSP, LU vice-chancellor, registrar and proctor appeared before it on a summons in connection with the incident.

The bench of Justices Vikram Nath and Rajesh Singh pulled up the police for not responding promptly to the complaint of the university authorities. It directed the police authorities to file affidavit as regards their action in the matter.

The matter will be next heard on July 16. Twenty-five expelled students of the LU had assaulted the VC and teachers on July 4.

The court, which took suo motu cognisance of the matter on the basis of newspaper reports, also asked the university to give suggestions as to what should be done to control hooliganism on the campus.
