KOCHI: The police have registered a case against the principal and the teachers in the accident that killed four people at a music concert in CUSAT. School of Engineering Principal Dr Deepak Kumar Sahu, Tech Fest Convenors and teachers Dr Girish Kumar Thambi, Dr N Biju have been charged for culpable homicide.

The syndicate had earlier issued notices to six persons found responsible for serious lapses. Dr Deepak Kumar Sahu, Staff Coordinator B S Girish Kumaran Thambi, Staff Treasurer N Biju, deputy registrar of the registrar's office, Anoorin Saleem, and three students, organizers of the Techfest, were issued the notice based on the November 25 syndicate sub-committee report on the disaster.

As it is alleged that the university registrar's office has made a big mistake in the incident, it will also be investigated. Although the principal had given a letter seeking police assistance for the program, the registrar was not ready to hand it over to the concerned parties. This will be mainly examined. The documents related to the investigation of the case were submitted to the high court yesterday.

The accident happened on November 25 killing four people. People entering the open-air auditorium where bollywood singer Nikita Gandhi's ganasandhya was to take place. The dead have been identified as engineering students Athul Thambi (22), Ann Rifta Roy (21) and Sarah Thomas (22) and Joseph's son Albin (22) of Palakkad Mundoor Ezhakkad Thaiparampil.
