BENGALURU: Hundreds of parents and students gathered outside National Pre University College in Jayanagar on Monday morning and staged a protest. A first year PUC student drowned during an NCC camp on Sunday. The protesters blamed the college management for not taking necessary care during the event conducted to mark the third anniversary of the Swacch Bharath Mission. Vishvas (17) drowned in a temple pond.

The parents were angered by the absence of NCC officer Girish in the premises where the incident took place. “We were just told they are going on some cleaning camp. But we were not provided complete information about the trip,” said a parent.

However, college authorities said that the NCC officer had not even informed the principal or the management about the trip. “Even 24 hours after the incident took place, the NCC officer has not informed college management or principal about the same,” said S N Nagaraja Reddy, Secretary National Education Society Karnataka. Officials of the Department of Pre-University officials said they will issue a showcase notice to the college.
