Thiruvananthapuram: The SFI activists of the University College accused of hacking student Akhil Chandran on Friday are still absconding even as principal K. Viswambaran said the college council meeting on Monday will decide on taking disciplinary action against the six accused. All of them would be expelled, he said.
The marches taken out by KSU, AISF and ABVP to the secretariat to protest against the incident turned violent on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the police said in the FIR that the students, including Akhil, were provoked to create tension on the campus. SFI unit secretary A.N. Nasim and member Amal held on to the victim while unit president Shivaranjith stabbed him with a murderous cry.
The cops have slapped charges of attempt to murder on six, including Nasim and Sivaranjith.
Akhil gave a statement to a doctor at the Thiruvananthapuram Medical College Hospital, where he is undergoing treatment, that he was stabbed by Shivaranjith while Nasim was standing next to the former.
Sivaranjith and Nasim had secured ranks in the state police test from Kasaragod. Both were also accused of assaulting two traffic police officers at Palayam.
Chandran, father of Akhil, said the family will move forward with the case. “We have the support of the CPM district leadership. My family is still CPM supporters. The party has done nothing wrong. The issue is personal ego,” he said....
