Around 15 activists of the Students Federation of India from the Calicut University campus  have been taken into  police custody  at  Thenhipalam in Malappuram district of Kerala when they tried to disrupt and waved black flags at Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development Sanjay Dhotre at a function attended by him at the University campus.
The Union Minister was in the campus to inaugurate the golden jubilee MHRD-Teaching Learning Centre as per the invitation of the University.
The incident of heckling and unruly conduct from the SFI activists occured around 1 pm when the function was about to begin.
The activists concealing the black flags with them were sitting among the audience at the EMS seminar complex on the campus when the minister arrived for the function, accompanied by the University Vice Chancellor Dr. K Mohammed Basheer and other dignitaries.
As soon as the minister started his speech, the SFI workers rushed to the stage raising slogans in support of the ongoing student agitation at Jawahar Lal Nehru University, New Delhi,against the rise in hostel fees, there.
The minister, the police and University authorities were taken aback by the unexpected turn of events. The few policemen on duty had a real tough time in controlling the agitators. The SFI activists were unrelenting to the pleas of police to keep calm.
Senior Civil Police Officer P Usha, attached to Thenhipalam police station, was injured in the melee.

Nearly 15 SFI workers were arrested from the spot by the Police.
Adequate police security was not provided to the central Minister holding the charge or education even as the JNU agitation was snowballing across the campuses. The students’ protest at the function got  aggravated due to the security lapse.
The Minister later told the reporters that the issues at JNU should have been  resolved by the administration there itself.
The Minister inaugurated the Teaching Learning Centre (TLC) after the fracas arising out of the protests staged by the SFI activists came to an end when the Police took them into custody.
Inaugurating the centre, Sanjay Dhotre lamented the abysmal shortage of highly efficient and capable teachers in the educational institutions. As a result, Indian Universities are pushed to the rear in the international arena.The present project of Calicut University will enhance the teaching standards of our University faculty, Minister said.
