Kozhikode: A complaint has been filed against a college directive allegedly barring black clothes and masks in an event to be attended by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in Kozhikode.
The authorities of Government Arts and Science College, Meenchanda barred students from wearing black to the event. However, the police said that they have not asked the college authorities to give such directions.
Meanwhile, security has been beefed up in the area ahead of the chief minister’s programme. The belongings of attendees, including bags, are being examined by the police.
Those without college identity cards or special passes will not be allowed to enter the college premises. In addition, two KSU activists have been taken into preventive custody considering the possibility of waving black flags at the chief minister.
Currently, there is a scenario wherein Congress activists are waving black flags at Pinarayi Vijayan in several areas across the state.
In order to avoid confronting protesters, Vijayan had opted for a helicopter service to attend an event in Palakkad, the other day.
