Death of Police officer in student politics
The college shot to limelight on February 11, 2013, when police officer Tapas Chowdhury was shot dead during preparations for student elections. Live TV footage taken by ABP Ananda showed the gun being fired by Sheikh Suhan, who was able to flee despite a significant police presence at the spot.
President of the college governing body, Trinamul Congress minister Firhad Hakim, initially suggested that Congress goons were behind the firing. This was retracted after the TV footage was aired and it was determined that the pistol-wielding Sheikh Suhan was the nephew of an assistant to Trinamul councillor Muhammad Iqbal (Munna), who went into hiding after the incident.
Teachers of the college were unaware of the dates for the election. They felt "sidelined since no one bothers to listen to our suggestions" and said that the "governing body has not done anything to improve the academic standards".
