Kerala Law academy which is in the eye of a storm over alleged irregularities in providing internal marks and harassment of students allegedly by its Principal Dr. Lekshmi Nair, daughter of college Chairman N Narayanan Nair, a close relative of a former CPI(M) MLA. Though the students are agitating for last 21 days demanding among others the removal of the Principal, various other issues including land utilisation had been raised later. Talks held to end the stir failed last night even as police booked Lakshmi Nair under the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act on a complaint of harassment by some students who alleged she called them by their caste name.
In an another setback to the Kerala Law Academy Law College (KLALC) and its principal, a Division Bench of the Kerala High Court today declined to intervene in a plea seeking a directive to remove the sheds constructed on either side of the road leading to the Academy-where the students and political leaders protesting against the Institute's administration.
All major political parties in the state including CPI, a key alliance partner in the CPI(M) led LDF have come out openly in support of the students who were protesting against the Dr. Lakhsmi Nair and Academy administration. The sources told PTI that the inquiry would also cover whether the land was originally allotted to the trust in the present structure that manages the KLA, which claimed itself as a private institution run by a public trust.
