New Delhi: Facing flak for being unable to contain the violence on the BHU campus, vice chancellor GC Tripathi on Monday decided to go on leave, citing personal reasons, according to sources.

BHU sources said that Tripathi has gone on leave for “indefinite period” due to personal reasons.

Earlier, speaking to CNN-News18, the VC had made it clear that he would rather quit than go on leave.

On September 27, Chief Proctor of Banaras Hindu University Professor Onkar Nath Singh resigned citing “moral responsibility” for the violent protests that rocked the campus. The Chief Proctor is the official charged with ensuring law and order on university campus.

The vice-chancellor has been under pressure for mishandling the protests after the female students were allegedly lathi-charged for agitating against a student's molestation on the campus.

He has been issued a notice by the National Human Rights Commission for failing to act on the woman’s complaint and the "unwarranted thrashing of students, mostly women".

His term ends on November 27.
