KOZHIKODE: Even as the High Court issued an interim order on Tuesday to give protection to the vice chancellor and employees of the Calicut University, employees’ organisations have rejected the offer saying that a critical situation that threatens their lives does not exist on the campus.

Representatives of the Solidarity of University Employees and Calicut University Staff Organisation said that so far the protests had been peaceful and did not disturb the functioning of the university and the free movement of the employees.

They reiterated that they did not need police protection inside or outside the campus. Vice-chancellor M Abdul Salam had submitted a petition in the High Court stating that fire bombs were hurled at his residence and a complaint was submitted at the Station house officer after such an incident on March 11.

He also submitted that on many occasions he was physically obstructed from entering his office. The VC had requested to grant protection to him and his family members at his official residence, and while travelling, allowing free movement to VC and officials to their offices.
