Kolkata: The authorities of St Paul’s Cathedral Mission College in Kolkata have expelled two Trinamool Chhatra Parishad (TMCP) leaders who had disrobed a student and forced him to make rounds of the union room for questioning the misuse of student union funds.
Arnab Ghosh, a first-year undergraduate student and Abhijit Dalui of second-year have been expelled on the basis of the report of a probe panel that the college had formed on 4 June. Ghosh is the president of TMCP ruled student union at the college; Dalui is a TMCP member.
The two, along with the college’s non-teaching staff Ananta Pramanik, and a TMCP activist from outside Enamul Haque, had disrobed the male student in the union room on 17 May because he had questioned the misuse of funds.
Not only this. The quartet shot video of the “punishment” on their mobile phone and spread it via WhatsApp so to deter other students from raising voice against corruption by the union.
After the victim student lodged a written complaint to the college on 2 June and the matter came to light in the media, the college authorities suspended staff Pramanik while setting up an eight-member panel to probe the matter.
The victim also lodged an FIR against the four at Amherst Street police station but even after the lapse of nearly two weeks cops have failed to nab the absconding accused.
