College teacher Debjani Dey, who was allegedly abused and assaulted by a former Trinamool MLA, will meet West Bengal governor MK Naraya-nan on Friday regarding this.
The accused, Arabul Islam, is president of the governing body of the college, known as Bhangar Mahavidyalaya, which is under the University of Calcutta. Dey’s colleagues will accompany her when she meets the governor, who is chancellor of the university.
They have also sought interviews with chief minister Mamata Banerjee and state education minister Bratya Basu but have not got an appointment with even one of them.
Meanwhile, the Trinamool Youth Congress and the Trinamool Chattra Parishad took out a rally near the college.
On Tuesday, Islam allegedly assaulted Dey, who teaches geography. He hurled a jug full of water at her and abused and threatened her. When some of her colleagues came to her rescue, Islam threatened and abused them also.
Islam said: “I did not assault her. I just asked her to speak politely as she was shouting with her fingers raised. She can’t do that because I am president of the governing body. If someone removes the leucoplast on her chin, I am sure no cut marks will be found.”
Opposition leader Suryaka-nta Mishra said: “The accused should be arrested.”
