Former diplomat T.P Sreenivasan slapped by SFI activists

Thiruvananthapuram: Former diplomat T.P. Sreenivasan, who is the vice-chairman of the Kerala State Higher Education Council, was on Friday roughed up by activists of the SFI when he came to attend the Global Education Summit .

"I heard the students saying my name, so it means they knew me. I have already spoken to the commissioner of police about the incident," Sreenivasan told the media.

The Student Federation of India (SFI) activists were camped at the event venue since Thursday evening, protesting the seminar, saying it was against the interest of the state and will benefit only the private sector.

The protestors had also threatened to block Chief Minister Oommen Chandy's way to the venue.

Meanwhile, CPI(M) district secretary Kadakampally Surendran alleged that the government was using police against students.

When pointed out that an SFI activist had hit Sreenivasan, Surendran apologised on behalf of the students.

"I apologise on behalf of the students. This should not have happened," he told reporters. He also said that as a tense situation was prevailing there, Sreenivasan should not have gone to speak to the students.
