Bhopal, Nov 16 (PTI) Students of the city-based National Law Institute University (NLIU), who had been on a protest seeking removal of the varsity director S S Singh for “harassment”, today ended their week-long stir and resumed classes.

The students, who had boycotted classes and were on a sit-in protest on the NLIU premises, ended their stir a day after their delegation held talks with Chief Justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court, Hemant Gupta, in Jabalpur, over their demands.

CJ Gupta told the delegation that that the process of appointing a new director for the prestigious law institute shall be expedited, a student said.

As per the minutes of the meeting, CJ Gupta, who also happens to be the NLIU Chancellor, formed a committee comprising state government officials, which will enquire into the allegations against Singh.

The Chief Justice also appointed Giribala Singh, Additional and Sessions Judge, Bhopal as the Registrar of NLIU with effect from November 16, the minutes of the meeting said.

During their sit-in, the students had also demanded appointment of a registrar in NLIU.

The students have been demanding Singh’s removal for “harassment” and for making “objectionable remarks against female students”. However, Singh has called these charges “baseless”.
