Teacher gheraoed

MALAPPURAM: Students’ Federation of India (SFI) activists gheraoed the Director of the Centre for Women’s Studies of the University of Calicut for over four hours on Tuesday. The students locked up Molly Kuruvilla in her room and broke the windowpanes of her office, demanding that she certify that the dissertations of a few of them were genuine and original. Her initial attempts to reach the university authorities failed as the students continued their agitation. The students ended their stir at 3.30 p.m. following discussions with Vice-Chancellor Anwar Jahan Zuberi. — Staff Reporter
