Students protest

Students of the Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute (SRFTI) have commenced a hunger strike demanding immediate revocation of the expulsion order issued to 14 girl students. Since October 17th there has been a tussle between the management and students following the expulsion of 14 students for refusing to shift to the newly built girls hostel.

Even though the students agreed for a segregation of hostels, the authorities refused to revoke the expulsion order and insisted that the students would be held responsible for acts of indiscipline. Hence the agitating students have decided to go on an indefinite hunger strike if their demands are not met.
