Letter from NLSIU Students Regarding strict Curfew
In 2012, students of the National Law School of India University (NLSIU) faced restrictions of getting in or out of the campus. Students were not allowed to get in or out of the campus after 9 p.m. and before 6 a.m. Unfortunately, this happened because of the alleged gang-rape of a student on the vast Jnanabharathi campus, where NLSIU is located. This accident and the reaction to it was a cause of disagreement between the authorities of the premier law school and its students.
Vice-Chancellor R. Venkata Rao said that it was strictly restricted to go in or out of the NLSIU campus after 9 p.m. and before 6 a.m. He also warned students about disciplinary measures and imposition of fines. Rao explained that he had to made this decision because of the general security environment around NLSIU campus, was not very satisfactory and there was a danger for people who moved during night hours. Students of NLSIY needed a special permission if they had to step out of the campus past the deadline.
However, students thought in a different way. They wrote a letter to the Vice Chancellor on December 17. In this letter, they said that that there are a lot of legitimate reasons to remain outside campus beyond 9 p.m. For example, public lectures, conferences, meetings, debates or such simply things like meeting parents, friends and coming back from a day's visit to town. Nevertheless, NLSIU Bangalore authorities didn’t want to listen to their students and cancel this restriction. Instead of this, they issued a warning to students’ parents that they would not tolerate any resistance or protests from students against the newly-imposed 9 p.m. curfew. Rao said the students who would move in and out during the prohibited hours would be reported to the parents. He also said that it was a necessary measure for students to out of danger. Rao also mentioned that the Bangalore University Campus has a large forest area adjoining the NLSIU which is Leopard infested. It was learnt that the students were planning to go on strike on this issue. Another Rao’s discussing decision was to fire professor Siddarth Chauhan. Siddarth Chauhan wasn’t happy with the restriction. He had sent a letter to the vice-chancellor wherein he had stated that instead restrictions, it was better to recommend students to avoid dangerous areas.
Afterwards the National Law School of India University was keeping its hostel gates open until 11 pm for some time.
