MS University’s garba halted by cops

September 29, 2014

The famed garba of M S University's Faculty of Fine Arts came to an early halt on Saturday night.

The revelers, who were enjoying dancing to the tunes of traditional music at the faculty, were in for a shock on Saturday night when the city police cracked down at the faculty - almost an hour before the deadline.

Even as there was no untoward incident in Sayajigunj area - all the revellers at the faculty were asked by the police to vacate the faculty ground at around 11 pm.

Even as the faculty is located much away from the riot-affected walled city area, the police action spread panic amongst revellers.

"The police arrived on our campus and closed the ongoing garba at 11 pm while normally it lasts till midnight," said Aanchal Sharma, a student of Faculty of Fine Arts.

"After the police's sudden action, there were even rumours that the police have sealed the campus leading to cancellation of garba revelry on Sunday night," she said.

"We were asked to close the garba early and rush home as early as possible by the police. There was no reason given to us for this," said Pranav Gohil, another reveller on the campus.

"The police had asked to close the garba after the final 'aarti' which is performed at 11 pm. But the way in which the police reached the faculty and asked everybody to stop garba at the faculty was very rude," said Malti Gaekwad, a senior faculty at Department of Applied Arts.
