Presidency mentor group condemns vandalism at university

Kolkata: Presidency Mentor Group on Sunday condemned the vandalism at the prestigious institution earlier this week and demanded stringent punishment for the accused.

"The incident is condemnable. A filthy thing has happened. Those who are behind this should be punished," chairman of the Presidency Mentor Group, Sugata Bose, said.

Appreciating Governor MK Narayanan's visit to the university on April 12, Bose said it came as a balm for the students of the institution.

Persons reportedly carrying Trinamool Congress flags had ransacked the Baker Laboratory and other departments, beat up some students and abused girl students as a reaction to the heckling of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Finance Minister Amit Mitra by SFI activists in New Delhi.
