The girl students staged a symbolic protest on the campus against the apathy of the authorities

The 24-page report, submitted by committee chairman and Head of the Philosophy department Dr. K Gopinathan has found that the safety concerns raised by girl students are genuine and deserved urgent rectification measures.

Dr.Muhammad Musthafa (Physics),Dr.K.K.Geethakumari (Sanskrit),Dr.A.B.Moitheen Kutty (Arabic),Dr.V.P.Sakeer Hussain (Physical Education),Dr.L. Thomasukuutty (Malayalam),Dr.Nagendra Srinivas (Russian) were the members of the Committee. The report said that the infrastructure deficiencies including absence of protection walls and unrestricted public access to the campus, were the main reasons leading to the eruption of undesirable incidents on the campus.

“We have stated that girl students are entitled to the same level of freedom enjoyed by boys on the campus. We have also recommended that the efforts to improve the safety of girl students should not be curtailing their freedom in any way,“ a committee member told.

The Committee was constituted after 600 female students of Calicut University have sent a memorandum to governor and chancellor P Sathasivam seeking his intervention to ensure their safety on the campus as they faced frequent mental and physical harassment inside the campus from some boy students of Physical Education Department  and outsiders.

The UGC has already taken cognizance of continuing harassment of these students after the national-level anti-ragging monitoring agency flagged it as an extremely serious issue (Escalation Category Type 3).

 Though the girl students repeatedly brought instances of harassment by male students including throwing of crackers at them and other acts of violence on them to their attention, they alleged that the  police and varsity authorities did preciously nothing to curb the burgeoning incidents of atrocities….

The Varsity meanwhile  suspended a lone  first year B.PEd student of  the department of physical education over complaints of hurling ‘explosives’ at seven girl students of the varsity while groping in dark about the major complaints raised by the girl students.

The girl students  staged a symbolic protest on the campus against the apathy of  the authorities  in providing security to them.

They tied the copies of complaints they submitted to authorities to balloons and released them in the sky.

Dr.K. Gopinathan,Chairman of the inquiry committee

In the midst of the mounting  criticism on the inaction on the part of the University and the intervention of   the Kerala State Human Rights Commission (KSHRC) registering a suo moto case into the complaints of harassment raised by girl students, the Varsity had to constitute the Committee of the heads of departments as an urgent measure to save its face.

 The committee has recommended the university to impose strict restrictions on entry of public to the university campus. “The unregulated entry of public to varsity campus should be stopped and necessary restrictions should be put in place,“ While recommending many immediate, short term and long term measures, the committee suggested the construction of a compound wall and installation of more illuminating light posts, street lights and  new security gates.
