“I was taken to a dark room where they beat me with lathis. My crime was to have worn a black shirt to college.”

This is what Lokanathan, an engineering graduate, has to say about his years in Sri Sai Ram Engineering college of Chennai. His testimony was released in a video by a group of former students.

Lokanathan, Dinesh Kumar, Pradeep Durairaj, Zaufer Sadiq and an anonymous person, who claim to have passed out from the college in 2007, paint a grim picture of the happenings on campus.

Students currently studying in Sri Sai Ram engineering college have been at loggerheads with the management for days now, demanding the ouster of a man called Balu, who they allege is not merely a campus manager, but a rowdy whose only duty was to “discipline” students using humiliation and sometimes violent methods.

The college first made headlines after an advisory with sexist and regressive rules surfaced. This including rules that barred girls from speaking to boys and prohibited them from having social media accounts. Although the college denied it, protests soon erupted against the strict rules and the college manager Balu.

The video with testimonies has been released at a time when some of the students plan to go on a hunger strike demanding the college to sack Balu.
