Besides, we will write to R&B division to fence the playground with barbed wire. Besides, we have formed an expert committee for the installation of CCTV cameras,” said BJB College principal Gulam Moinuddin Khan.

“We have been instructed to allow entry of students with uniform and ID cards into the campus.
