VISAKHAPATNAM : PARENTS and students of a private junior college at MVP Colony damaged the  furniture on its office premises and staged a protest alleging that the authorities had  closed down the institution after collecting hefty admission fee. The authorities of the institution are reportedly at large.

According to parents, the college was started two years back, where Intermediate  along with CA CPT courses in several packages are offered. The college management had collected the fees from the second year students and the new entrants and the fees varied from `30,000 to `80,000 depending on the type of the course. This year also, many students have paid their admission fee. However, after summer vacation the college did not run since the date of its reopening on June 9. The parents alleged that none of the teachers took classes. When some of the students contacted, college MD Shareef promised to conduct classes normally. In the meantime, some of the senior students told their juniors a few days ago that the college was going to be closed.

On Tuesday, around 70 parents and students entered the office room and damaged the furniture in the office. The parents also staged a protest demanding the return of the paid fee. The parents said that they had submitted their original certificates and now the college was closed and admissions in other colleges were also over. This led to a few tense moments. Police and Regional Intermediate Officer Nagesh intervened to pacify the crowd. Nagesh said the college was  started a few years ago and illegally running it by stating that they were offering Intermediate course along with CA CPT.
