Thiruvananthapuram: Spelling more trouble for Kerala Law Academy Law College Principal Lekshmi Nair, Kerala Pulayar Mahaha Sabha, an outfit of backward community, has called for the arrest of Nair for her alleged harassment of dalit students in the college.
The Sabha leaders, while talking to the media here on Sunday, said that they would take out a march to the Academy seeking Nair's arrest on Monday.

The college is in the eye of a storm over alleged irregularities in providing internal marks and harassment of students by Lekshmi Nair, daughter of college secretary N Narayanan Nair, a close relative of a former CPI(M) MLA.
Academy issue also divided the CPI-M and CPI, the two major partners in the CPI-M led ruling LDF with CPI openly coming out in support of students agitation.
SFI, students’ wing of the CPI-M, had called off the stir last week after management agreed to keep away Lekshmi Nair from the post of principal for the next five years.
