Deepa Nisanth had sup­ported SFI’s beef fes­ti­val and posted a com­ment on Face­book

Deccan Chronicle - - NATION -

The man­age­ment of a lead­ing gov­ern­men­taided col­lege, which sus­pended six stu­dents for al­legedly con­duct­ing a ‘beef fes­ti­val’ on the cam­pus, on Tues­day sought ex­pla­na­tion from a woman lec­turer who had sup­ported the stu­dents’ ac­tion on so­cial media.

In her Face­book post, Deepa Nisanth, a fac­ulty of the col­lege, had sup­ported the ‘beef fes­ti­val’ or­gan­ised by SFI ac­tivists on Oc­to­ber 1 to protest against the lynch­ing of a man in Ut­tar Pradesh over ru­mours of eat­ing beef.

Though she later with­drew the post, in which she sup­ported the ‘beef fest’ and con­demned the ac­tion of the col­lege man­age- ment against stu­dents, it had gone vi­ral on the so­cial media.

Cochin Devas­wom Board, an au­ton­o­mous or­gan­i­sa­tion which man­ages the Sree Ker­ala Varma Col­lege, asked the col­lege prin­ci­pal to sub­mit a re­port on the is­sue.

Col­lege prin­ci­pal C.M. Latha said an ex­pla­na­tion was sought from the lec­turer in this re­gard.
