THE CITY police have urged college principals to immediate rusticate students involved in criminal activities including loots. Of late, students have been caught in most of the loot incidents in the City.
The alarming trend has worried the police which want the college authorities to take effective steps for checking criminal students.
A meeting of college principals with police officials was held at the Police Control Room in Jehangirabad on Tuesday. Around 50 college principals attended the meeting. Many colleges have taken action against students involved in crimes and the list was submitted to police which, in turn, handed over more names to the colleges for further action.
Some principals said that the student leaders and bullies on the campus often get away due to political connections. They said that such students use their clout to not only escape disciplinary action but also cause problems for the management. The police officers assured them of full cooperation in this regard.
Inspector General of Police Sanjeev Kumar Singh said that principals have assured stern action against the criminal elements. Principals of technical colleges dominated the meeting.
Regarding incidents of eve teasing near girls’ colleges, it was decided to hold meetings of DSPs with authorities of the college in their area of jurisdiction.
Besides, the police urged the college authorities to identify criminal elements and bullies on the campus. It was also decided to hold such meetings in future as well.
