According to the reports, a complaint was registered at the Dehat Kotwali police station against BHU south campus deputy chief proctor Kiran Damle for outraging religious feelings.

On Tuesday, students of Banaras Hindu University’s Rajiv Gandhi South campus in Barkachha had staged a dharna the demanding the resignation of the college’s Deputy chief proctor Kiran Damle alleging that she had uprooted the RSS flag from the campus during a Shakha organised by the students of the college.

As per reports, the resident students of various hostels in the college organise such Shakhas every morning in the playground within the campus. On Tuesday, many students had put up an RSS flag to set up a Shakha.

Terming it as disrespect of the flag, RSS members had demanded her removal from the university while alleging that Damle had misbehaved with students. Damle later apologised for removing the flag and resigned from the post.

The deputy chief proctor had said in view of the ‘prevailing atmosphere’ she had asked for the removal of the flag and since it was not done, she handed it to her assistant attendant Satish.

Her resignation has been sent to proctor OP Singh. The protestors got the support of local MLA Ratnakar Misra and RSS leader Sohan who reached the spot soon after. Meanwhile, SP Dharamvir Singh said the removal of the flag has hurt the sentiments of RSS swayamsevaks and Damle should instead have explained and prevailed upon them for getting it removed.
