Ahmedabad, April 7

Six students from Afghanistan and one from East Africa have been asked to vacate the Gujarat University’s hostel rooms for overstaying, an official said on Sunday, in a move coming weeks after some foreign students were attacked for offering namaz on the premises.

An Afghan and a Gambian delegation had visited the university days after the March 16 attack and held a meeting with the Vice Chancellor over safety measures.

University’s Vice Chancellor Neerja Gupta said, “Six students from Afghanistan and one from East Africa were asked to vacate their hostel rooms after they were found overstaying.”

These persons had completed their studies and were staying in the hostel as former students due to some pending administrative work, she said.

The university has said they are no longer required to stay in the hostel and has arranged for them to return to their respective countries, Gupta said.

“We have completed the required paperwork and they can now safely return to their native countries. We don’t want to keep any former students in our hostel. We have informed the consulates of the respective countries, and they have also directed these students to vacate the hostel,” the Vice Chancellor said.

More than 300 international students are enrolled in Gujarat University, she said.
