The Hush Post: A student was ‘stripped naked’ and subsequently a movie was made inside the students’ union room of St Paul’s Cathedral College in Kolkata.
Subsequently, the video of the incident went viral after it was shared by one of the culprits. The student can be seen pleading for mercy at St Paul’s Cathedral College after being forcibly stripped in front of a group of boys.
The victim is reportedly from the Trinamool Congress’ student wing.
Meanwhile, West Bengal Education Minister Partha Chatterjee said that ‘strict action’ will be taken against those found involved in the act. Chatterjee has already received a written complaint from the victim regarding the issue.
“If the allegations are found true in the inquiry report of the college, the government will show ‘zero tolerance’ to such misconduct,” he reportedly said.
The first-year student, who claimed to be a member of the Trinamool Congress Chhatra Parishad (TMCP) unit of the college, said that he was subjected to torture by some senior members of the students’ wing when he enquired about the expenses for an upcoming fest in the college.
TMCP state president Jaya Dutta, on her part, said she will speak with the college authorities and TMCP members of North Kolkata unit before taking a call on the matter. The union will take strict action against its own members if they are found guilty.
