Police camp closed at CU

A police control room set up on the Calicut University campus for the last one year is now closed down bringing tranquility from the tense atmosphere the campus has been facing due to the strikes and turmoils of sorts over the last few years.

The control room with a platoon of 25 police personnel with arms under a Circle Inspector of Police was deployed on the University campus to ensure security for the last incumbent Vice Chancellor Dr. M. Abdul Salam, who had been in the eye of a storm ever since he took charge nearly four years ago. In addition to this, two pistol-borne Police constables were also guarding Dr. Salam at his office and on the move until he demitted his office on August 11.The police team was deployed at Cyber Spot and at the Departmental Students Union (DSU) office.

The police camp clamped for the first time in any University in the state followed the barging of SFI and DYFI activists into the Vice Chancellor’s office in protest against the alleged corruption in the appointment and the vandalism and attack that ensued.

The students, teachers and employees of the University vehemently opposed the police control room on the University campus and many of his other unpopular measures including putting up a campus siren to announce time every hour and establishment of a fort like gate in front of the administration office. With strikes and clashes were the order of the day over the hostel issue and various other issues during the tenure of Dr. Abdul Salam, the University campus at present heaves a sigh of relief, as the staff and students’ unions seem to have bid adieu to the path of agitation for the time being after his exit.

Kannur University Vice Chancellor Dr. Khader Mangat, who assumed additional charge of the Vice Chancellor at Calicut University on 12 August abolished the campus siren introduced by Dr. Abdul Salam soon after he took charge, kindling hopes to the detractors that he would undo the unpopular measures introduced by his predecessor.cupolice3
