Following the attack on Presidency University by students in April 2013, the West Bengal Human Rights Commission (WBHRC) has asked the state government to create guidelines within two months to deal with the cases of unlawful activities by the students in and around educational premises.
The WBHRC said in its recommendation that the State Government should devise some suitable guidelines for dealing with the cases of unlawful activities by the students in educational institutions.  

The WBHRC also pointed out in its report that the police was inactive on the day of attack, and had failed completely in its duty to handle such public violence and maintain law and order in the University.

Such guidelines are required to be made, even though the law is there as the police often fail to perform their duties according to the law for tackling unlawful activities by students in educational institutions, asserted the commission in its recommendation.

It added further, "It must be remembered that the existing infrastructure in our educational institutions are inadequate and we can ill afford to deplete them further. These guidelines should be framed by the State Government within two months from the date of communication of the order".
