Kerala Samajam, CPM seek justice in Manipal gang rape

Mangalore, June 25, 2013, DHNS:

Condemning the Manipal gang rape incident, the Kerala Samajam organised a massive protest in front of Deputy Commissioner’s Office in Mangalore on Tuesday.

Addressing the protesters, Kerala Samajam President T K Rajan said that such incidents question the safety for women. This coastal Karnataka region is known to house many educational institutions, which invite students from different parts of the country as well as the world to pursue their education. Appropriate security to female students is a must.

The cops should investigate this case on a priority basis, he demanded.

Vice President of Kerala Samajam Maxim Sebastian said that the heads of institutions are also responsible for the students, who study in their institution portals. They should ensure that such incidents do not recur, he stressed.

SDM Law College Vice Principal P D Sebastain demanded for the creation of a safe atmosphere. Students should move around freely, without fear, he said.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, Anjali a student of Sarojini Madhusudan Kushe School said that the rapists should not be spared. “Such incidents discourage students, who come to study here especially from other parts. People who create such kind of fear should not be spared,” she demanded.

Earlier, the members of Kerala Samajam, students of Sarojini Madhusudan Kushe School and Kerala Samajam School took out a protest march from Kerala Samajam office premises to DC’s office.

CPM protest

The Manipal gang rape incident has brought shame to undivided Dakshina Kannada, said CPM District Secretary B Madhava.

Speaking at a protest staged in front of DC's office in Mangalore on Tuesday, he said that the issue should not be taken lightly.

“Manipal is like a mini world, as students from different nations come to study here .

Hence, safety of the students should be a major priority. If the culprits are not caught and punished, students may lose hope in the system and hence may not come to study in Manipal,” he said.

The University management has also been careless. When the University keeps the library open till late night, it is also responsible to ensure the safety of the students.
The cops should not neglect this case, as happened in Saujanya’s rape and murder.

There is a need to create a society without fear, stressed Madhava. CPM members Vasanth Achary, Sunil Bajal among others were present.
