NLSIU, BU impose 7pm curfew to 'tighten security'

NLSIU Bangalore students will now have a 7 pm curfew on leaving campus, agreed Bangalore University (BU) authorities and the NLSIU management yesterday.[TOI]

The measure comes in the wake of Saturday’s alleged rape of a second-year NLSIU student by seven to eight unidentified persons in the forest adjoining the law school campus, where she was out with her friend after 10 PM.

NLSIU students have demanded deployment of the police or Central Industrial Security Forces in place of the current private security guards manning the college gates. The bigger IIM and IISc campuses in Bangalore do not enjoy such cover, although those are not next to forest land like NLSIU is. [India Today]

Yesterday Legally India reported on the victim-blaming tone adopted by the police, the media and BU throughout investigations into the incident, after BU threatened to evict NLSIU from its campus.
