The then vice-chancellor, Arvind Kumar Dixit, who built the five-storey building, was accused of corruption. Gaurav Sharma, former president of the University Students’ Union, says there was extreme manipulation in the construction of the building. Students come here to study at the risk of their lives. Iron stairs were installed from the outside in the five-story building. Accidents have happened here on several occasions.

Tiles had fallen from the fifth floor
