New Delhi: Following the Miranda House incident, the University of Delhi has issued advisories to colleges on how to organise events. In its guidelines, the university asked colleges not to organise events without prior police permission and to limit admission to festivals.

Entry should be permitted only after registration for the event with a college ID and the number of volunteers assisting the event must be informed to the police.

Videos of men climbing walls of Delhi University's all-women's college Miranda House during the celebration of Diwali at the institute, on October 16, led to uproar across the nation as it has been reported that the men indulged in "cat-calling, groping, sexist sloganeering, and more".

Videos shared on social media by students of Miranda House showed that the men were climbing walls to get into the college while some were seen to be raising slogans like 'Ramjas ka naara hai, Miranda humaara hai' on the campus.
