Sullia: A week after a 28-year-old youth was stripped and beaten up in the heart of Mangaluru while he was in a car with a colleague belonging to another religion, a II Pre-University student and his college mate, a first PU student, have been placed under suspension for two weeks by a college in Sullia, 100 km away from Mangaluru, following protests by a section of students about their ‘friendship’.

The boy was from Sullia while the girl was from Kasaragod. She was staying in her relative’s house in Sullia, before moving to a hostel around 15 days ago.

After a  group of students had submitted a petition to the college principal seeking action against the duo, a few days ago, a large group of students protested and demanded action on Wednesday evening. The police intervened to restore calm but on Thursday, the students boycotted classes.

‘We had to do this’

The principal said that the two students had been asked not to come to college for the next 15 days. “We had to do this to bring the situation under control. The protesting students had disrupted functioning of the college for the last few days,” the principal said.

The principal said an internal inquiry revealed SMS exchanges between them.  The principal said the parents of the boy and girl came to the college on Thursday. After hearing about the incident, the girl’s mother left along with her daughter to Kasaragod. The boy was also taken away by his parents.
