Hearing a petition by a student, Justice N Kirubakaran made it clear that the private security appointed by the VC should get instructions from police and act as per the order of the police officer on special duty posted there.
The judge, who had directed the DGP to appear in person and also file a status report, dispensed with his personal appearance.
Counsel for the Puducherry government submitted that the primary responsibility for the incidents lay with the Union HRD Ministry, which had not appointed a Vice Chancellor for the past two years.
The judge who raised several questions after perusing the status report, wanted to know how many FIRs were filed and how many people were arrested in connection with the incident.
He then posted the matter for further hearing to November 24.
