Mangalore, July 25: Students belonging to Government Women’s First Grade College were on Friday July 25 reportedly told by the college principal not to attend classes for participating in a protest organized by the local unit of Students Federation of India (SFI).
The SFI had organized a protest on Thursday July 24 condemning the increase in the number of sexual crimes against women. Several students of the college participated in the protest.
Madhuri Bolar, a student of Government Women’s Degree College, who is also a member of state SFI, said, “Since yesterday the students are out. The principal did not allow them in and even used foul language.”
However, soon after the media arrived at the college premises, the lecturers allowed the students to enter the classes.
It is learnt that the decision comes in the wake of participation of students without informing or taking the permission of the Principle. The students had lied that Principle had given permission, when the Principle was not even aware of this. To teach a lesson so that the students do not repeat this in future, Principle expelled them from attending classes.
