BANGALORE: A woman journalist of a regional news channel has accused the principal and a lecturer of The National Degree College of trying to assault her at Jayanagar 7th Block on Monday.

Police said Sowmya Reddy, in her complaint, accused lecturer G Subramanya and principal Narappa of gagging her on the college premises.

Police said Sowmya along with a cameraman and a cab driver had gone to the college around 12.30 pm to report the problems as some students had complained about some issues and lack of cleanliness in class rooms.

A few students had also complained of dengue and were hospitalised after mosquitoes bit them in the class rooms, they said.

“While recording the opinions of the students, Narappa and Subramanya rushed there and snatched the mike and asked us to go away from the spot. When I questioned about their behaviour, they tried to assault me,” she has complained.

Jayanagar police are investigating in this connection.

Meanwhile, President of National Education Society, which runs the college, A H Rama Rao told Express that both the principal and the lecturer have a good name and termed the allegations false.

No need to give importance to such things, Rao said.
