The September 14 order, signed by the chief proctor, states that the competent authority has sanctioned the campus ban on the former students to maintain a peaceful academic environment.

Zargar was arrested in connection with the 2020 riots.

Zargar had said that the administration was not responding to his application. Zargar wrote a letter to Jamia Vice-Chancellor Najma Akhtar that he was being harassed by the administration.
