AMU Vice Chancellor Lt Gen (retd) Zameer Uddin Shah, however, has expressed concern over the filing of FIR "merely on the basis of a statement of a person who is himself an accused".

Aligarh: An FIR has been registered against the Pro-Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University and two other senior officials in connection with violence on campus in which two persons were killed in April last year.

The Civil Lines Police filed the FIR following orders of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Aligarh, Justice Gyanendra Yadav on a petition filed by Mohammad Zorez, a research scholar, who is also one of the accused in the case and is out on bail.

Zorez had moved the CJM court, alleging that the Pro-Vice Chancellor, Proctor and Deputy Proctor had instigated a group of people to resort to violence on campus in which two persons were killed last year. The court ordered lodging of FIR yesterday, police said today.

AMU Vice Chancellor Lt Gen (retd) Zameer Uddin Shah, however, has expressed concern over the filing of FIR "merely on the basis of a statement of a person who is himself an accused".

He said the allegation made by Zorez "should be dismissed".

Two youths, including a former student, were killed in a shootout between rival gangs near the proctor's office in April last year.

The proctor's office and that of the dean (students welfare) were ransacked and set afire, several vehicles were torched and an abortive attempt was made to break into the VC lodge.
