SC has refused to entertain a plea for judicial intervention to end the logjam at FTII, Pune.
The Supreme Court saw PIL seeking intervention to end the FTII crisis, the PIL was formally rejected that was triggered by the appointment of Gajendra Chauhan as the chairman of the premier institute.
The protesting students have been demanding removal of BJP member and TV actor Gajendra Chauhan from the post of chairman of the Governing Council of Film & Television Institute of India.
Apart from a stand on the students’ demands, which include removal of Chauhan and four members of the FTII body, who allegedly lack “credentials and status”, the I&B committee is also expected to make known its stand on the controversial police complaint filed by FTII director Prashant Pathrabe that led to the arrests of five students involved in his gherao recently.
