The students alleged that action was not taken against the college management as it belonged to Minister Narayana. They accused him of misusing authority to suppress such cases of student suicides. The students raised slogans against the Minister and demanded that the Chief Minister remove him from the Cabinet.
The Minister was not showing much interest in the college affairs and as a result the students are being treated badly at his institutions, the agitating students alleged.Both the college management and the police are not available to the media to take their version in this case.
