In a bizarre move that reeks of moral policing, a college in Mangaluru has suspended two students because they were caught with alcohol bottles in WhatsApp photos that went viral.

Yes, according to Times of India report the Kukke Sri Subrahmanyeswara College in Sullia taluk in Dakshina Kannada district on Friday suspended two 2nd year BBM girls because of a picture of them with wine and beer bottles at a tourist spot went viral on WhatsApp.

"The college has received information that the girls' photos were circulated on WhatsApp. A students' organization and local people have demanded action against the girls. The principal suspended the girls and has initiated an inquiry into the issue," College vice-principal M Manmohan was quoted as saying in the report.

The decision seems harsh since the alleged incident took place outside the campus and the college does not reserve the right to suspend students for activities outside campus.

Indian colleges have gained quite an infamy for suspending students left, right and centre. While IIT-Roorkee suspended over 70 students for underperforming in exams, the famous St Stephen's college had suspended a student for launching an online magazine.
