Lucknow, Dec 09 (UiTV/IANS) – The Lucknow University (LU) has banned all celebrations in the canteens , a day after two groups of students clashed at the commerce canteen during a birthday party.
The proctor’s office has issued directives to ban all kinds of celebrations and has issued mandatory guidelines for all canteen owners to ensure the law-and-order situation was maintained.
“It has come to light that during celebrations at canteens students enter into fights or arguments that disrupts campus discipline. It has been decided that the owners will ensure no celebrations are held at the canteen. If students insist or force, then the canteen owner must inform the proctor’s office,” said chief proctor Prof Rakesh Dwivedi.
He said also every canteen owner has been asked to ensure that CCTV cameras are installed, and students are not allowed to park their two or four-wheelers outside the canteen.
“Also, it will be the responsibility of the people running the canteen that no outsider/ non-LU student is allowed to use the facility,” he added.

Unqualified student attends MBBS classes in Kerala; Police begins probe
The Kerala Police on Friday commenced a probe after a student, who did not even qualify for medical entrance examination, was found attending first year MBBS classes in the Kozhikode Medical College for a few days.
Last month, the girl from Malappuram district had announced on social media that she had secured admission to the MBBS course.
On November 29, when the session started, she attended the classes along with 244 other students.
This went on for the next few days after which she was not seen.
What has baffled the authorities was that though her name did not figure in the list of candidates, it was there in the attendance list.
The principal then registered a complaint with the Kozhikode Police and an assistant commissioner of police has now started their probe.
