Calicut University accused of spraying deadly pesticides

Kozhikode: Calicut University cannot seem to keep away from making news. The latest allegation by employees as well as environmentalists is that authorities are guilty of spraying lethal pesticides, including roundup. The fresh controversy arose after an orchard near the campus was burned down. The Vice Chancellor says that all who saw the sight of burnt down trees on an acre patch felt grieved and were moved to tears. Locals and environmentalists complained of a harsh odour enveloping the atmosphere on pesticides being sprayed in the worm-infested mangrove. They said that the use of pesticides caused irritation to surrounding dwellers.
