Seth Anandram Jaipuria College, which shut its operation due to the students’ clash, will reopen from Tuesday. A team from the higher education department, which reached the college to take stock of the situation, has reported to the state government. The state education department has decided to reopen the college from Tuesday.
The college administration had to stop all activities on Wednesday due to the alleged students’ clash. From Wednesday to Saturday, the college administration could not commence functioning and the matter was reported to the higher education department. There was a clash in the college between two colleges on Wednesday that forced innocent students and professors to leave the college.
As BA Part-I examination is also ongoing in the college, the college authority then took the decision to shut the college. Meanwhile, Tapan Mondal, a laboratory staff of Jaipuria College, got injured on Friday noon, during a clash with a section of students in the college campus, according to reports.
The students claimed that Mondal was helping few candidates in illegal admission after taking money from them. When students went to protest against it, Mondal allegedly assaulted them and molested a few girls as well.
Meanwhile, a few students on Monday blocked a road near Scottish Church College as they did not want principal Amit Abraham to resign. Later Abraham approached the police and said the ruckus created after the roads were blocked was his responsibility and asked them to arrest him. However, after a brief detention, Abraham was asked to return to the college by the cops. In another incident, power cut disrupted an examination at Madhyamgram’s Badu area. The examination of Staff Selection Commission was in process there on Monday. But the sudden power cut disrupted the examination.
