The situation turned chaotic at Government Post Graduate College in Hisar as students turned up in large numbers for the admission counselling on Wednesday. The authorities were forced to call the police to maintain order and ensure adherence to the Covid guidelines.

Meanwhile, most of the girls and college staff was wearing masks, however, boys seemed careless as almost 70 per cent of them were found violating the rules. Even the college staff deployed at the entrance gate to restrict the entry of students not wearing masks stopped taking measures around noon.

As the strength of the students — those who came to attend the classes and for the physical counseling — went out of the control, the college authorities called the police.

The students said the police pushed them around even when they were wearing masks and sitting in the lawn or standing near the parking lot.

Meanwhile, pricipal PS Rohilla said: “We called the police as the turnout of students was more than our expectations. But we ensured thermal scanning, sanitisation and wearing of masks on the premises. Social distancing inside the classrooms was maintained too.”
