Police have booked the editor and the magazine committee of Sree Krishna College in Guruvayur for derogatory remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and spiritual leader Amritanandamayi.
The case was registered on the complaint of BJP’s student unit ABVP, which held a pro-test march to the college, run by Guruvayur Temple Affairs Board, on Friday. Recently, ex-principal, a faculty member and four students of a government polytechnic at Kunnamkulam were arrested for listing Modi among “negative faces” in the college magazine.
The Guruvayur college magazine titled Name was published towards the end of last academic year, but distributed among its students only last week. The college magazine was brought out by union and editorial board, controlled by SFI, student outfit of CPM.
False cases play havoc with the crime statistics and tend to trivialise the offence of rape.
