New Delhi: The Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), which had been closed sine die on October 30 following violence over the murder of a student, will re-open on December 1, Vice-Chancellor Professor P K Abdul Azis announced here today. Prof Azis said the situation created by the agitating students supported by ''outside elements'' had left no choice for him to announce closure of the University.


Consequent to the abrupt closure of the University and in order to minimise the loss of working days, the University has declared winter vacations from November 16-30.


Prof Azis said the University had agreed to the demand made on behalf of agitating students by certain well wishers of the University that the students involved in 'dharna' should not be victimised.


''Although the students are under suspension as per the University regulations, the University assured them that no one will be victimised for participating in the current 'dharna'. All students so exonerated will be required to submit the undertaking that they will fully observe the University's Code of Conduct,'' he said.


He also said the University will examine afresh the demand for restoration of the Students' Union.


A high-level committee will be appointed soon to examine the modalities of operationalising the Lyngdoh Committee Report. The Committee will be asked to submit its report within three months, he said.


The Vice-Chancellor said the decision to close down the University was taken in a consultative meeting after long deliberations.


''Dharna, disruption of classes, highly provocative speeches, false rumours and allegations, name-calling by the agitating students supported by outside elements, including former Student Union leaders and some political workers who visited and delivered inflammatory speeches at the 'dharna' site, has surcharged the atmosphere, leaving no option than to declare closure in order to avert any major crisis,'' he said.


He said now the decision to reopen the University has been taken in order to save the students from further loss of their studies.


University's Proctor and Dean Students' Welfare will arrange 24-hour transportation to the students from the bus stand and railway station to their respective halls of residence. Provosts will also keep open the dining hall and other facilities to welcome the students and facilitate their smooth accommodation in the respective hostels, he said.
