Kannada examination was held in the college on Friday. On Friday, when some Muslim students wearing hijabs came to the college in Upangari, 50 km from Mangalore, they were barred from entering the examination hall. Due to this tension spread in the college campus due to which about two and a half hundred students including boys started protesting. Everyone started wearing hijab and asking permission to sit for the exam.
The Muslim leaders of the village tried to talk to the students but many students left without taking the exam. College Principal Sudhir Kumar said, “231 second year police students, including boys, left without taking the Kannada exam.”
