Asked about the demand of agitating students who are protesting against the appointment of Gajendra Chauhan as the institute's chairman, Rathore said, the recent incident related only to the assessment of 2008 batch.
    
"The incident which occured two days ago, because of which police came and they were arrested, in that eight hours there was no mention of Gajendra Chauhan. In those eight hours there was only one thing that the assessments of 2008-09 batch should be stopped," Rathore said.
    
He added that a course which is of three-year duration, could not be completed even in eight years, problems have arisen because of that, due to which the three-member team was in Pune.
    
"When it returns, then after analysing their interaction with students, faculty and director, a decision would be taken," he said.
