Protests at AMU's women's college intensified on Thursday with hundreds of students blocking its entry points as the exam boycott at the university's engineering college continued for the fourth successive day. The protesters, including schoolgirls, have locked the gates from inside and have formed a human chain to prevent teaching staff from entering the college campus. Meanwhile, Vice-Chancellor Tariq Mansoor, in an open letter to the university community, said there was "no justification in keeping the university open if classes and examinations are prevented from being held". In his open letter, the Vice-Chancellor made the 'last appeal' to maintain peace on the campus and end the boycott of classes and examinations. The main demands of the protesting students pertain to an assurance from the vice-chancellor that all "false cases" registered against protesting students during the anti-CAA agitation will be withdrawn.
