MADURAI: After two days of high octane activities witnessed at the American College, things returned to normality on Monday. Examinations were conducted and peace prevailed on campus.
It all happened following apprehensions raised on the likelihood of a takeover of the college by the Church of South India’s Madurai-Ramnad Diocese. Peace talks were arranged between the supporters of the Bishop, ex-officio chairman of the governing council, and those of Principal and secretary, T. Chinnaraj Joseph Jaikumar.
With the talks failing to produce any conclusive results, as assured, Mr. Chinnaraj ensured peaceful conduct of the examinations. A huge posse of policemen was posted to prevent any unsavoury incident inside the campus.
