Kattankulathur: SRM Institute of Science and Technology (SRMIST), Kattankulathur, on Wednesday denied the circular doing rounds on social media under its letterhead. According to the circular, the university asked all girl students to have at least one boyfriend.
Alleging the circular as 'fake', the Registrar office released a message that read, "This is to bring your kind attention that there is a couple of fake and inappropriate circulars being sent under the name and designation of SRMIST's administration/Registrar. These circulars contain false information and spoil the image of our Institute. Henceforth, any person – student attempting to send such unauthorized letters will be dealt with firmly and expelled from the Institution."
The institute has clarified that they have filed a cyber police complaint to ascertain the source of the message. The university also threatened students of expulsion on sharing the circular.
The hilarious, viral circular read, "It is mandatory for each and every female student of SRMIST KTR Campus to have a boyfriend inside the university premises. This has been done for the security purposes. Those girls who are single will not be allowed to enter into premises. They will have to show a recent picture with their boyfriend while entering the campus."
The institute has alleged students of misusing their official communication letterhead for the prank.
