Jagatsinghpur: Authorities of SVM Autonomous College in Jagatsinghpur lodged a police complaint after a fake notice asking girl students to arrange at least one boyfriend each went viral on social media.
“It is mandatory for all girls to have at least one boyfriend by 14th February. This has been done for security purpose. Single girls will not be allowed to enter into the college premises.
