Amidst reports that Lakshmi Nair, who was 'removed' as the principal of Kerala Law Academy following student protests, might go abroad, youth and student organisations have demanded her arrest and seizure of her passport. 
 

All India Youth Federation, the youth wing of the Communist Party of India (CPI), demanded the government to act immediately and seize the passport of   Nair before she left the country. The police had registered a non-bailable case against Nair under SC/ST Atrocities Prevention Act for verbally abusing a Dalit student and calling caste. Why the police are hesitant to arrest Nair, the AIYF quipped.

Meanwhile, the agitation for the resignation of Lakshmi Nair, along with a slew of other demands, intensified on the 23rd day of protests on Thursday.
