Balasore: Tension ran high on the premises of Laxmi Narayan College at Jamsuli under Singla police limits in Odisha’s Balasore district today as students ransacked the college over non-fulfilment of their demands.
The students had yesterday locked the gate of the college protesting the hike in examination fees. As the college authorities didn’t pay any attention towards their grievances, the students today set tyres on fire at various places in the building and ransacked furniture.
“Examination fee in our college is too high in comparison to other colleges in the area. This apart, fees collected from us for the development of the educational institution are not being utilised at all,” a student said.
As situation became tense, police reached the college and brought the situation under control. Cops have been deployed on the premises to avoid any untoward incident.
