Nagpur University senate member in dock after students enter hostel, used as quarantine centre, without PPE

Few days back, a video got viral on social media, following which a senate member of Nagpur University was in the dock. The member was accused of aiding three students to enter the hostel situated at Law College square, which is currently a quarantine centre, without ensuring adequate safety.

In the video, two students could be seen entering the hostel to pick up their documents. However, only one student wore a PPE, while the other wore a mask. The senate member was accused of risking the students lives by letting them inside the hostel, which currently has COVID-19 suspects. While management council member Vishnu Changde and senate member Mohan Bajpayee demanded an inquiry, the ABVP activist Amit Patle demanded an explanation from Dr Murlidhar Chandekar, active Vice Chancellor of Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU). Patle questioned Dr Chandekar by saying who was responsible for the act and asked would other students be allowed to collect their documents as well?

Warden Shyam Koretti blamed the senate member for exposing the students to the contaminated place. He said that some students representatives misguided them. However, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) Additional Commissioner Ram Joshi told Nation Next, I was asked for at least one PPE kit. I handed over the one PPE kit that someone donated it to me. I gave it assuming only one student would get inside to collect all required documents.
