The statement of the student body said: "They portrayed their anger through poetry today, using their words as a tool of resistance. They shall be striking till they receive the budget of the event, the final constitution of the ICC (internal complaints committee), and the reports of the Fact Finding Committee."

The university's proctor also held a meeting with the students union on Thursday.

"The Proctor assured us of the college's support to the students and their cause, and reiterated that the college will work to make the university and colleges safe throughout the year," the body said.
