She further said,“I work at the administration department but when I saw people running, I joined them. One has to act fast when it comes to fire disaster,” she said. A student, who identified himself as Jare,  said many students had left the campus in protest against the hike in tuition fees adding that it was possible that some of the aggrieved students burned the library as a form of protest.
