The man walks around the Bu campus at night; Univ strengthens security | News from Coimbatore

Coimbatore: After a video clip of an unidentified man walking around the campus of Bharathiar University (BU) at night went viral, the university administration has tightened security at its premises. The video was recorded by inmates of the women’s shelter.
Speaking to TOI, Vice Chancellor Dr P Kaliraj said the video was recorded on Saturday and security personnel on duty tried to catch the man but to no avail.
“Seeing the security personnel, the man started running. As the security guards chased him, they couldn’t catch him. We have filed a complaint with the Vadavalli police in this regard,” he said.
After the incident, the university administration set up a watchtower on campus. “It will be occupied by a former military man,” Kaliraj said.
The Vice Chancellor said they have deployed additional security guards to campus. “In addition, we have deployed female security guards in the women’s hostel area at night.”
On March 31, a group of female students staged a protest on the BU campus, calling on the university administration to ensure their safety in the women’s hostel.
Meanwhile, the police department is expected to deploy cops to the college campus soon.
