Vadodara, Feb 3: A former art student of Gujarat’s Maharaja Sayajirao University torched a cabin at the head office over not getting degree certificate.

The student has been identified as Srilamanthula Chandramohan. He arrived on campus around 5 pm, armed with petrol and a toy gun. He went to the MSU head office. Soon after, flames erupted from the glass windows of the ground floor of the building. A ruckus ensued as the staff — mostly clerical and from accounts department — who were wrapping up for the day tried to save important files. Guards on the campus, on being alerted, caught hold of Chandramohan, who did not appear to resist, The Indian Express reported.

After the police received information about the fire, rushed to the spot and arrested the student.

Chandramohan told police that his act was a result of his exasperation about not having received his Master’s degree since the past 11 years.

Speaking to the Indian Express, a police official said, “He told us that he passed the Masters course in 2007 but the university has not handed over his certificate. He claims that his career has been affected as he does not have a Masters certificate. He said he made more than 25 petitions to the university in the past 11 years, but the certificate was not given to him”.

The Sayajigunj police said that they have initiated a probe into the matter.

However, this is not the first time Chandramohan came into the limelight, In 2007 his paintings created a stir and invited the ire of Vishwa Hindu Parishad and other Hindu religious groups.

When he was pursuing his Master of Fine Arts degree in Graphics at MSU, he drew “objectionable paintings” of Jesus Christ and Goddess Durga.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta on Monday informed the Supreme Court that the Centre has taken a holistic view of the issue of air pollution in Delhi NCR, which also includes pollution due to stubble burning, and it intends to bring out a legislation in next three to four days to tackle this issue.

A bench headed by Chief Justice S.A. Bobde told Mehta, representing the Centre, it welcomes the Centre’s decision to establish a body to address the menace of air pollution. “Everybody is choking in the city, it must be curbed”, said the Chief Justice citing the menace of air pollution in the national capital.

Mehta replied the Centre will come out with the legislation in three to four days and the government is keen to establish a permanent body of experts to address air pollution.

“We can come out with the legislation in three to four days”, submitted Mehta, insisting that the top court should keep its earlier order, which directed formation of a panel headed by retired judge Justice Madan B. Lokur to monitor steps taken to curb the stubble burning issue in the neighbouring states of Delhi, in abeyance.

The top court reiterated that it welcomes this step by the Centre, in which it will create a permanent body by enacting a legislation to deal with the annual air pollution problem, which includes pollution from stubble burning in Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.
