KOCHI:  The Kerala High Court Thursday temporarily prevented the arrest of Lekshmi Nair, former principal of Law Academy Law College, on the basis of the complaint of a student that she had made casteist remarks against him, till February 23. The court prevented her arrest considering her plea.  The case was registered under sections 3 (1) (i) of SC and ST (prevention of atrocities) Act 1989, for which bail could be obtained only from a magistrate. The complaint was filed by V G Vivek, fourth-semester B.Com-LLB student.

She made the remark against Vivek, who belonged to a backward community, due to the grudge over giving a news report regarding the non-payment of grants to the students of scheduled communities because of the college management’s lapses. The alleged incident took place on January 21, 2016. Vivek, who was standing along with four of his friends near the college office, was addressed by Lekshmi Nair using his caste name. She said that he was not the only student from the backward community studying in the college and that no other student had complaints over non-payment of grant.
