“Foreign students should understand and respect the law of the land and should lead a respectful life by mingling with the residents of the area,” suggested Commissioner of Police B Dayananda.
He was addressing the foreign students in a conversation held at University Fine Arts College auditorium, Saraswathipuram, organised by the commissioner’s office for the foreign students studying in various colleges of Mysuru, on Friday.
“By induling in fights with the students of other nationals and the students of the region where you reside, you will spoil the name of your country. You have come here for higher education and your concentration should be on studies. If you find any trouble or difficulty, contact the nearby police station,” he suggested.
More than 200 foreign students participated in the programme and took part in the discussion with the commissioner.
Dayananda discussed regarding the attacks on the foreign students in other states. Foreign students were suggested to have residential permit, driving licence with them.
Mahammad Ali Usman, Councillor of Education for Kenya High Commission, Director of Road safety Bengaluru, Dr C T Murthy, Prof Hemanth Kumar, DCP H T Shekhar, Rudramuni and others were present.
