Are Karnataka's campuses the hotbed of Naxal sympathizers? "To some extent, yes,'' home minister V S Acharya maintained.
"There are reports of some Naxal sympathisers in universities and colleges of the state. As of now, I cannot reveal more details,'' he told in the council on Thursday.
Describing Naxalism as "hysteria'', Acharya said: "We should carefully curb the audience to Naxals similar to the hysteric treatment, I seek cooperation from all quarters in this regard.'' (TOI)
