Student pushed to death by teacher

July 27: A second-year student of a private polytechnic here died after he was allegedly beaten up by a teacher of the institution on Wednesday, sparking protests from students who blocked the Villupuram-Tiruchy NH. The student, identified as D. Prabhakaran hailing from Govindasalai in Puducherry, was rushed to the Villupuram government medical college hospital where he was pronounced dead. The teacher has been arrested.

According to police sources, Prabhakaran, a student of Automobile Engineering in Ezhumalai Polytechnic, was slapped severely by Mr Gunasekaran for failing to answer a question in class. The teacher then pushed him out of the classroom and Prabhakaran fell to the ground and suffered injuries. The police said Prabhakaran suffered seizures after his head hit the ground and fainted. The post-mortem report is awaited, they added. However, students alleged that Prabhakaran was bleeding through the nose and mouth and that the death was caused by the assault.

Tension mounted after the students blocked the Villupuram-Tiruchy NH demanding the police arrest the accused. Though a team of senior police and revenue officials, led by Villupuram RDO R. Priya, rushed to the spot and pacified the agitators, members of the Puratchikara Manava Munnani, amongst the protestors, raised the pitch. The police then resorted to lathicharge.

Villupuram Medical College will function from the next academic year

“Villupuram medical college will function from next academic year”

College to be four-storied structure spread over 25,694 sq.m with 500 beds

Outpatient ward with blood bank to have an additional 4,951 sq.m space

Villupuram Medical College will function from the next academic year, subject to mandatory clearances, Higher Education Minister K. Ponmudy said.

Of the three medical colleges announced in the last budget ' Villupuram, Dharmapuri and Tiruvarur ' work was progressing fast on the Villupuram college after “impediments in its path” were removed, Mr. Ponmudy said.

The government passed an order in August 2006 for setting up the medical college. Local Administration Minister M.K. Stalin laid the foundation stone in May 2007. A litigation held up construction. In December, bhoomi puja was performed for construction of the Rs.99-crore government medical college and hospital at Mundiambakkam near Villupuram.

As regards two other colleges, the Minister said he was satisfied with the progress of work. The Villupuram college would be a four-storied structure spread over 25,694 sq.m and would have 500 beds. The outpatient ward with a blood bank would have an additional 4,951 sq.m space. In the next phase, classrooms, an administrative building, an auditorium, hostels and quarters for doctors and nurses would be built.

Mr. Ponmudy told that the motive behind setting up these medical colleges was to give a fillip to educational facilities there. “Of the six constituent colleges of Anna University, three are in Villupuram district ' Panruti, Tindivanam and Villupuram. This is again a measure to take affordable professional education to the door step of the rural student.”

Mr. Ponmudy said preliminary work on the Sivaganga and Perambalur medical colleges had also begun. Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi would lay the foundation for the Sivaganga Medical College on February 8.
