- They said beef was not cooked and only chicken and fish was cooked

A law college in Kerala has issued a notice to one of its students for allegedly cooking beef on the campus. The principal issued a memo which said that by bringing beef to campus the student created a favourable situation to spark communal violence on campus.
The notice was issued by T P Rajalekshmy, principal of Bhavan's N A Palkhivala Academy For Advanced Legal Studies and Research at Ramanattukara, which states that the student insulted the beliefs of a section of the pupil by bringing beef to campus and distributing it.
"We have come to know that under your leadership beef was brought to the campus on March 20 and it was cooked and distributed. This is an unpardonable offence, and you have done it fully knowing that it is not allowed," the memo said.
The notice was issued to Sarjas A T, a student of the college. The SFI unit had organised a 'symbolic protest' on the campus against the closure of college canteen. "As part of the protest, we cooked rice, fish, chicken and sambar and distributed it among students. The beef was not on the menu. However, college management raised false allegations against us," Sarjas said.
The memo also alleges that Sarjas tried to organise female students to protest against college authorities. Sarjas said that female students has protested against security issues and not against management. "Female students had staged a sit-in protest on March 21 demanding better security at college hostel."
Meanwhile, college authorities said that only vegetarian food is allowed on the campus. "We got numerous complaints against cooking and distribution of non-vegetarian food on campus," academy director P Parameswaran said.
