Violent turn: The police resort to lathicharge after a march taken out by SFI activists to the Jubilee Mission Medical College and Research Institute in Thrissur on Monday turned violent.
THRISSUR: A march taken out on Monday by the Students' Federation of India to the Jubilee Mission Medical College and Research Institute, run by the Thrissur Archdiocese, turned violent.
The police resorted to lathicharge to disperse the protesters.
The SFI took out the march in protest against the stand of the Inter-Church Council regarding admissions to self-financing medical colleges, and against decisions taken at recent talks between a Cabinet sub-committee and Christian managements.
Eight SFI activists were injured in the lathicharge and have been admitted to the District Hospital. They included P.G. Subidas, SFI district president, K.B. Saneesh, district secretary, and N.G. Girilal, joint secretary.
SFI activists later staged a sit-in in front of the college in protest against the lathicharge.
CPI(M) district secretary A.C. Moideen condemned the police action.
The SFI will take out protest marches at all colleges in the district on Tuesday.
Activists of the Muslim Students' Federation (MSF) took out a march to Amala Institute of Medical Sciences on Monday in protest against the stand of the Inter-Church Council on admissions to self-financing medical colleges. The protesters scuffled with the police.
