students came for swimming certificate

Kozhikode: Violating Covid protocol, swimming selection was conducted here on Wednesday for the students to claim grace marks for the plus one allotment. Nearly 500 students participated in the selection camp organised by the District Sports Council at Nadakkavu.


The students can secure bonus points in the plus one allotment by submitting the swimming certificate. Earlier this certificate was provided through the local governing bodies, but recently the government released an order to distribute the swimming certificates via District Sports Council.

Subsequently, the swimming competitions started yesterday at the Sports Council swimming pool. A clear violation of COVID protocol occurred here as students and parents from all over the district reached the venue.

KSU activists also reached the spot protesting against the crowding.
