SFI asks Congress to condemn attack

KANNUR: The Students Federation of India (SFI) has demanded that senior Congress leaders, including Leader of the Opposition Oommen Chandy, visit S.E.S. College at Sreekantapuram here and condemn the attack allegedly carried out by the Kerala Students Union (KSU) and the Youth Congress on the campus on Saturday.

SFI State president K.V. Sumesh said at a press conference here on Sunday the KSUs denial of its involvement in the attack made no sense. The provocation for the attack was the rejection of the nomination papers filed by a KSU worker by the returning officer of the college union elections held on Friday.

Mr. Sumesh alleged that the Principal was partisan for not saying that the KSU was involved in the attack.

The attackers smashed 228 windowpanes, notice boards and tube lights of the college and the windscreens of two cars parked on the premises of the house of a lecturer who was the returning officer.
