Additional Registrar of Lovely Professional University, Manish Gupta has sought a restraining order on the former Union Minister Shri Vijay Sampla, his son Sahil Sampla, and supporter Amit Taneja in the Phagwara Court from making statements against the University.

After the judicial proceedings, the court mentioned in its order that not only the image and reputation of plaintiff University, but the future of staff working with it and most important, the future of students studying in the University is at stake because of the defendants (Mr. Vijay Sampla, Mr. Sampla’s son (Mr. Sahil Sampla) and his close aid Mr. Amit Taneja) and has passed the restraining order from doing so illegally with any ulterior motive without justification. Next hearing in this regard on 13th May.

The university has said that on March 13, the Department of Higher Education Punjab had ordered to suspend classes from March 14 to March 31. The university suspended the classes. The order did not mention to get the hostels vacated. On 21 March, the Union Ministry of Human Resources issued a letter to let students stay in hostels.

On 27 March, the Center again directed that the university should take full care of the students, staff and officers. There were 22625 students in the hostels, out of which 20090 (close to 90%) had left. However, due to the closure of air-rail travels and other means of transport, the rest of the students could not go.

Sampla, his son and supporter have given wrong statements against the university, even compared the university to the Tablighi Jamaat on social media. The university also said that they are also mentally harassing the students and staff by giving false statements.
