University college violence: Govt will ensure punishment for culprits, says K. T. Jaleel
Thiruvananthapuram: The government will take stringent action against culprits of the recent violence in University college, said K. T. Jaleel, Minister for Higher Education on Tuesday.
“The government will ensure punishment for the culprits no matter who they are,” Jaleel said while speaking to media after a meeting with Governor justice P. Sathasivam.
The minister said he met the Governor regarding another matter but the University violence issue was also discussed.
“The Governor has sought a report for the university vice chancellor and not me. There will not be any lapses from the government. Director of College Education has been given the responsibility to take action,” Jaleel said.
“Three non-teaching staff have been transferred. Several teachers may have to be transferred. But the Governor need not be informed about these. The Governor knows that the government will take stringent action,” Jaleel added.
