Madras HC ordered a students, who attended lecture in intoxicated state, to do community service

The Madras High Court found a 'pragmatic solution' to deal with students who were expelled from a college for attending a lecture in a drunken state. The Court directed them to do community service and propagate anti-liquor messages in order to continue their course in the college. The Court did not want to spoil their career for a mistake committed due to youthful indiscretion. At the same time, the Court wanted to send them a message. That is why the court gave this verdict. Justice R Suresh Kumar directed "Students to visit Kamaraj Memorial, at Virudhunagar Town of Virudhunagar District, the birth place (house) of K.Kamaraj, former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, on Independence Day, to clean the memorial house and assist visitors. For two hours in evening they were directed to carry two placards each, with slogans in 'Tamil' opposing the intoxication or using of alcohol or liqueur, by persons, especially, students, and demonstrate the same in front of the memorial by standing on one side of the street/road enabling the onlookers or passerby to watch these students/petitioners."
