- Professor Kedar Kumar Mandal posted controversial update on Facebook
- Police complaint has been filed against him, police yet to file an FIR
- RSS-affiliated ABVP has demanded immediate suspension of the professor
The DU professor had posted the controversial Facebook update at 07:43 pm on Friday and later deleted it.
The National Democratic Teachers Front (NDTF), a BJP-affiliated teachers' body, filed a complaint against the DU professor Mandal on Saturday at the Lodhi Colony police station. Police said they have received a complaint but are yet to file an FIR.
Mr Mandal did not respond to messages and could not be reached on his phone for comments.
"We demand his suspension and we request the student community to boycott his classes. Mandal has provoked sentiments during a festival time of Hindu - Navratri," ABVP's Dayal Singh College unit said in a statement.
"If allowed to continue as a teacher he will only spread hatred among students."
