Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) on Saturday issued a notice prohibiting students from holding protest meetings or agitations inside the university campus.

‘Strict action’

“Any kind of protest meeting, speeches and mass gathering or unlawful activities causing disruption in the academic functioning are not allowed around the central canteen or anywhere in the JMI campus,” read the notice.

“Students are expected to cooperate actively in discipline maintenance in maintaining discipline to support conduct of exams and classes. They are also expected to immediately report any outsider or unauthorised campus entry as this can lead to an attempt of disruption of peace at JMI,” the statement read.
