Students-Battle

CUDDALORE: Students of Kandaswami Naidu College (KNC) for Women held a sit-in protest on the college campus in Cuddalore on Monday, against transferring a professor.

The professor Santhi working in the Maths Department of the college, which comes under the management of Pachaiyappa’s Trust Board,  was transferred to the Pachaiyappa’s College for Men in Kancheepuram by the board. So, Santhi moved the Madras High Court against the transfer order and the court ordered status quo for two weeks.

On December 3, Santhi went to the KNC College for duty, but the police stopped her and sent her out, citing the court order.

On December 8, students of all departments in the college held a sit-in protest, demanding the cancellation of transfer order. Students Federation of India also supported the protest and they all boycotted classes and raised slogans in support of Santhi.

Police protection was provided at the college in the wake of the  protest.

Students said, “Professor Santhi supports us in studies. She has been working for our  welfare in the college. But, she was transferred  without any reason. We will continue our protest till the transfer order is cancelled.” 

When reporters in Cuddalore went to the college to cover the protest, they were stopped by the women police team.

The team told the reporters that the college management had asked them not to allow the reporters into the campus and sent the reporters out and locked the gate up.

On information, Cuddalore DSP Ramamurthy arrived at the spot and had to pacify the reporters.
