The vice chancellor ‘s observations were an echo of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti who had said that had” it been known that Burhan was in the hideout , he could have been given a chance ( to escape)”
Sharma who is trying to be on the right side of Mehbooba Mufti, who also is the pro-chancellor of the university . He is looking for an extension for himself.
