The troubles do not seem to come to a halt anytime soon for the students of Maharani’s College.
There have been numerous reports in that past that perpetrators have a free run around and inside the college and the women’s hostel, leaving the students vulnerable and unsafe.
The CCTV footage of naked man wearing women undergarments, walking inside the hostel compound with a knife has been found, leaving all to shock.
Students say that they had filed numerous complaints with the police about random men entering college premises but all fell onto deaf ears. However, the CCTV footage is enough is prove the claims of students.
The footage clearly shows a half-naked man entering the hostel at night holding a knife and stealing women’s undergarments. However, the students were prompt enough to call the security guards and chase him off the building.
This comes after the Kannada lecturer of the Maharani’s Arts, Commerce and Management College for Women was finally suspended from the college for allegedly molesting an undergraduate student, after reports emerged a few days ago.
“We’ve shared the details with the committee. The commissioner of the department of collegiate education (Ajay Nagabhushan) was also present. We’ve decided to suspend the lecturer and the order is being readied,” Maharani’s principal R Shanthakumari said.
The menace of random men freely entering the college and hostel has raised up many questions about the safety of women in a nearly 80-year-old college.
