A recent judgement delivered by Justice K. Vinod Chandran of the Hight Court of Kerala has come to the attention of The Kochi Post. The case pertained to a writ petition filed by a student of Marthoma College of Science and Technology, Kollam. The college had decided to take disciplinary action against the girl and a boy, both students of the college, after the couple was apprehended by the police in a lodge in Trivandrum.
They had eloped and a man missing complaint had been filed. The police produced them before a magistrate after which they were released to their respective parents.
The college management, on learning about the incident, took disciplinary action by sending them out of college.
