The campus is functioning under the Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) headquartered in Kochi. Angithkumar and Himashukumzar alleged the college authorities told them that it was vegetable cutlets when repeatedly asked whether it was beef or veg. So they ate them. “Only after consuming it, we came to know that these were beef cutlets,” Angithkumar said.
