In August of this year, the morons of SFI locked up the main from Karyavattom Government College in Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala. The director’s only mistake was to refuse the re-admission of an SFI manager to the same course, after having graduated the previous year.
Apparently, the SFI henchmen demanded that their leader be enrolled in the same course because he had some paperwork to do. However, the director of the government college in Karyavattom refused to grant their request.
Angered by the decision, SFI activists locked the principal in his cabin for over an hour. They also waved slogans demanding the readmission of their leader.
