Cuttack: Ravenshaw University was closed sine die today following students unrest over fee hike, an official said.
Sources said the varsity authorities have asked the students to vacate the campus and hostel by 10 am on Wednesday.
The decision of the authorities came after hundreds of students of the varsity staged a mass demonstration on the campus and gheraoed the Vice Chancellor’s office protesting against fee hike and other issues this morning.
The university had hiked fee and asked students to vacate the hostels by May 28 for carrying out renovation work. The decision was vehemently opposed by the students.
They were also demanding immediate withdrawal of the university authorities’ decision to introduce compulsory meals for hostel inmates and re-introduction of previous instant examination system for final-year students.
