KOZHIKODE: The seven-member committee of heads of the departments at Calicut University has indicated in its report that the safety of girl students is at risk inside the campus.
The report is likely to be presented to Vice-Chancellor K Mohammed Basheer in the first week of January. Meanwhile, suggestions on this matter have been invited from individuals, staff, student unions and other sections in the university. The suggestions should be submitted to the committee convener/members before December 30, announced committee convener K Gopinathan, head of the department of philosophy.
The committee comprising of Mohammed Musthafa, K K Geethakumari, A B Moideenkutty and Nagendra Sreenivas inspected the campus day and night and found that the safety of the girl students is at risk owing to the lack of a proper compound wall and security force. They also found that outsiders can enter and roam around the campus at any time. Though there are six gates, two-wheelers can enter the campus anytime.
It was on December 14 that a group of girl students complained against the atrocities by some of the students in particular departments and the nuisance by the outsiders to the women’s cell.
The students welfare committee and the Vice-Chancellor had convened a committee to probe the issue. The committee will recommend the speedy implementation of Seemanthini Commission report.
