BENGALURU: The High Court on Thursday asked the government not to take action against Pragathi PU College in Kadugodi and its students until further orders.

A 17-year-old student, Gauthami, was shot dead by an attender on the college premises recently.

Hearing the writ appeal filed by the college, a division bench of Officiating Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee and Justice B V Nagarathna directed the authorities not to take any action until further orders either against the management or the students.

The bench also allowed the pleas of some of the students studying in the college seeking that they be impleaded as parties in the case.

The students contended that there are no other colleges in Kadugodi.There is no need for them to shift from Pragathi College, they said.

Earlier, the management had challenged before a single-judge bench the action of Director of Pre-University Education Board withdrawing recognition of the college on July 7 and directed that students shift to some other colleges nearby.
