BHU gets first woman chief proctorUnder the scanner for an unsafe atmosphere for women on the campus, the Banaras Hindu University on 28th Sept 2017 appointed a woman as its chief proctor.

Professor Royana Singh, who will hold the post, is a professor in the Anatomy Department of the Institute of Medical Sciences, an official in the 101-year-old central University announced.

She takes charge after O.N Singh resigned from the post, taking “moral responsibility” for the lathi charge on students who were protesting against the victim-blaming of a colleague who was molested on the campus.

Ms. Singh is also the chairman of the Women's Grievance Cell of the BHU.

Ms. Singh was born in France, where she also received her primary education.

She then shifted to India along with her parents, who are originally from Senapur village in Jaunpur district.

BHU had appointed Mahendra Kumar Singh as interim chief proctor.
