Ragging case: MSF condemns varsity order

Special Correspondent

KOZHIKODE: The Muslim Students Federation (MSF) has condemned the order of Calicut University annulling the dismissal of a Students Federation of India (SFI) activist from Government Law College for his alleged involvement in a case of ragging a first-year student of the college.

The MSF leaders addressed a press conference along with the victim of the incident, Mohammed Salif, here on Thursday.

MSF State president P.K. Feroze and Mr. Salif claimed that the SFI leader was dismissed following a unanimous decision taken by the college staff council and the PTA. How could the university annul the order, they asked.

Report flayed

The MSF leaders rejected a report on the incident prepared by a member of the university Syndicate stating that he “did not take statements from even those students who were ready to depose and that the report was clearly meant to protect the SFI leader.” They said the MSF would approach the State Human Rights Commission and launch an agitation against the police for not arresting the SFI leader though a petition had been lodged against him at the Chevayur police station in connection with the incident.
