Prof. V.T. Rema reacted that she taught in different colleges for 30 years, but she never behaved liked this nor has seen anyone behaving like this. She wondered what would be the conditions of the students if a teacher is this much uncivilized. Rema and BJP leaders have submitted their complaint before the varsity authorities and the police. Varsity has asked Rafi to submit his explanation within a couple of days.
