Denied TC, Hyd Narayana Junior College student attempts suicide

Hyderabad: A student of Narayana Junior College in Ramanthapur attempted suicide on 19 August after the college refused to give him his transfer certificate. According to sources, the student had completed his intermediate and was waiting for his TC.

Sources said the student was being harassed by the college administration for non-payment of fees. He tried to convince the principal but they did not pay any heed.

Finally, on Thursday, the frustrated student went to the principal's room with a bottle of petrol and set the room on fire. The principal and the administrative officer were seriously injured. The three were immediately taken to Gandhi Hospital for treatment.

"An unfortunate incident of arson has occurred at the Narayana College Campus in Ramanthapur. Our Principal and another staff member have suffered multiple burn injuries as a consequence. We take the safety of our students and staff very seriously. We have a zero-tolerance policy against such dangerous behaviour on our campuses. We are consulting with our legal team and are preparing to file criminal charges against those responsible for this heinous incident."

Srisailam Veeramalla, the national coordinator of Akhil Bharathiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), said the student did not belong to ABVP.

Meanwhile, some student organisations like ABVP and Progressive Democratic Students Union (PDSU) came out in support of the student. Responding to the incident, PDSU said the Narayana institutions across the state should be abolished and criminal cases should be registered against its owners.

"Narayana institutions are working with the aim to extort fees. They are attracting innocent students by giving various names to the courses and charging Rs. 2 lakhs as admission fees. Many students have already died by suicide because they could not withstand the financial and psychological violence of the Narayana administration. We demand that these educational institutions be banned immediately," said Mahesh, the state president of PDSU.

He added that allowing such institutions to function is legitimising their exploitation.
