Birbhum: Close on the heels of two
successive attacks on college principals in the state, another
principal fell unconscious after he was gheraoed for about two
and half hours by students at Rampurhat in Birbhum district
on Wednesday, police said.

Sibashis Banerjee, principal of the Rampurhat College,
fell unconscious after a section of students gheraoed him in
protest against his yesterday`s press statement that he had
been threatened by students that Raiganj would be repeated if
he did not withdraw newly introduced student identity cards.

Banerjee was immediately hospitalised, Additional
Superintendent of Police Farhan Abbas said adding that the
principal did not make any complaint to police about the
alleged threat.

Meanwhile, both Chhatra Prishad (CP)and Trinamool
Congress Chhatra Parishad (TMCCP), students`wings of Congress
and Trinamool Congress denied that their supporters had
threatened the principal.

Banerjee had made allegations against these two
students unions yesterday.

The principals of Raiganj college in North Dinajpur
district and Majdia college in Nadia district had been
manhandled allegedly by TMCCP and SFI supporters in the past
four days triggering state-wide condemnations.
