Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) Vice Chancellor Tariq Mansoor has regretted what happened on the university campus on December 15 due to the police action on students.

In a letter to students, he admits being “deeply pained” by the turn of events of December 15, especially the injuries caused by police action and the mental trauma suffered by the students.

“To them and the families, I say that I regret what happened. The decision taken on the night of December 15 was in good faith and with clear conscience. Primarily it was aimed to disperse the charged up students who had got carried away with false rumours of death of two students at Jamia Millia Islamia. When we saw the situation going out of hand, it was imperative to act appropriately.”

He reiterated that the AMU administration and he personally had no intention to subvert student rights. He urged the students to feel free to voice their concerns.
