New Delhi: After Gulbarga University revoked permission to former JNU Students' Union president Kanhaiya Kumar to deliver a special lecture on the campus, the Vice-Chancellor of the university has clarified that she took the decision due to security reasons.

"We had concerns over the security of the campus, considering which, I took the decision to cancel the programme. There was no order from the Governor," Vice Chancellor Parimala Ambekar told ANI on Wednesday.
