‘College goers misguided by ex-students’
A day after six students were apprehended with weapons in two places in the city on the first day of college reopening and several incidents of students creating nuisance while travelling on public transport, Joint Commissioner (East) T S Anbu on Tuesday said the youth were being misdirected by former students, leading to clashes between them.
Unlike 2017, untoward incidents were by and large prevented this year due to the efforts by the police, who had warned the students of different colleges ahead of the new academic year.
According to the officer, NGOs have come forward to provide counselling to students not to indulge in unnecessary fights. “If students want to prove that their college is best, they should do it academically or with their skills,” said the Joint Commissioner. He added that parents should also spend more time and advice their children.
Meanwhile, videos of Presidency College students celebrating bus day by taking an MTC bus (21G) hostage on Kamarajar Salai have surfaced on social media.
The video showed the students climbing on top of the bus and dancing. The police are checking whether it is an old video uploaded online again or a fresh case of hooliganism by the students.
