Kolkata: The St Paul’s Cathedral Mission College in Kolkata has finally woken up to the disrobing of a student on the campus by Trinamool Chhatra Parishad (TMCP) student union leaders for raising questions about the spending of the union funds.
The college authority today instituted an eight-member committee to prove the episode and has suspended the accused non-teaching staff, Ananta Pramanik, pending inquiry.
This apart that college has also lodged an FIR at the Amherst Street police station. The move comes after state education minister Partha Chatterjee asked the college authority to deal with the accused firmly irrespective of their political affiliation.
Pramanik, along with the college’s TMCP-led student union president Arnab Ghosh, TMCP member Abhijit Dolui, and a Trinamool worker from outside named Sk Enamul Haque are accused of disrobing a male student on the college campus recently and forcing him make rounds of the student union room after he had raised doubts about proper spending of the union funds.
Not only this, the undergraduate student was assaulted naked and the video of this was circulated among other students over the WhatsApp so as to deter any further dissent in the future.
The victim student, who initially got scared and kept mum, finally lodged a written complaint with the college principal last Saturday (2 June).
