Police books principal and 11 students of the Guruvayur Sree Krishna College as campus magazine was found to have used “objectionable and unsavoury" language against the Prime Minister.

Close on the heels of the arrest of the principal and six students of a polytechnic college in Kerala for featuring Narendra Modi in its campus magazine as a “negative face”, journal of a nearby college also attracted police action for using “objectionable and unsavoury” language against the Prime Minister.

Police on Friday registered case against the principal and 11 students of the Sree Krishna College at Guruvayur after its campus magazine was found to have used “objectionable and unsavoury” language against Mr. Modi, in the garb of a cross-word puzzle.

The Guruvyaur Sree Krishna temple managing committee, which runs the college, had sought an explanation from the principal in connection with the case, temple administration sources said.

The BJP and its youth wing workers took out a march demanding action against the principal, police said.

The principal and a few students of the government polytechnic at Kunnamkulam are facing legal action for featuring Mr. Modi’s photograph in the college magazine under a list of “negative faces” along with Adolf Hitler, George W. Bush, Osama bin Laden and a few others.

The principal of the Kunnamkulam polytechnic M.N. Krishnan Kutty, and six students, including the Student Editor, were arrested and later let on bail.
