Pall of gloom on campus
A pall of gloom descended on Pune’s Azam campus which also houses the Abeda Inamdar Senior College of Arts, Science and Commerce, as 14 students drowned off Murud beach on Monday.

In fact, among those drowned include two sisters Rafiya Ansari Mumtaz and Shafiya Ansari Mumtaz. The parents of Choudhary Sajeed Saipanmulk were inconsolable.

Parents in shock
“They could not come to the college, their condition is bad. They are inconsolable and fainted several times,” said a relative. As soon as TV channels flashed news of the Murud drowning tragedy, parents and relatives of students started assembling outside the college - and several of them also demanded the resignation of P A Inamdar, the President of Maharashtra Cosmopolitan Education Society, that runs the Abeda Inamdar college.

“You take more than a 100 kids and just a few teachers...what precautions the college has taken. When students see water, they are bound to jump in it. The administration has failed in protecting the lives of its own students,” said Ahmed, who is a parent of student. “I spoke to my son, he is safe, but he is in a state of shock,” he said.
