Jaipuria College principal harassment case: Police inspect CCTV footage
The police are inspecting the footages of surveillance cameras to spot the culprits who were involved in the case where the principal of Seth Anandram Jaipuria College was threatened and beaten up in the middle of the road on Monday morning.
On the basis of the complaint lodged by Ashok Mukherjee, the principal of Seth Anandram Jaipuria College, police have started the probe. A police team inspected the spot and asked the local shop owners about the incident.
“The footages of close circuit cameras (CCTVs) were examined. We have spotted some youth who tried entering his car forcefully. The investigation is underway,” said a police officer.
On Monday, while on his way to college, the principal was waylaid by some miscreants at Raja Dinendra street, and threatened and beaten up. Some miscreants forced him to open the door of his car and threatened him with dire consequences.
They even started to beat him there. Mukherjee lodged a complaint with Narkeldanga police station. The miscreants had their faces covered. When asked, Mukherjee said to Millennium Post that he did not know who those culprits were. They came in the way of his car, opened the door forcefully and threatened him.
He said that he does not know whether those people were connected to his college or not.
Mukherjee on Monday had told police in his complaint that the incident took place near the telephone exchange on Raja Dinendra Street.
Some unidentified youth suddenly appeared there to beat him. They even threatened him. Refusing to disclose anything more, Mukherjee said he had informed everything to the police.
It is to be remembered that the Seth Anandram Jaipuria was shut due to student clash. The college administration could not continue academic activities and the matter was reported to the higher education department.
The team from the higher education department, after examining the situation took the decision to continue the academic activities.
However, the reason of the disruption of the study at college was certainly student clash. The two groups of students started fighting in the college building as the other students and professors were compelled to leave the college.
Later, state education department acting on the instruction of education minister Partha Chattejee, managed the issue as the college resumed its operation. The investigation team suspect that the attack on the principal might have been done by some students or former students of the college.
