Governor orders probe
It is important to enquire into such matters immediately so that the guilty do not escape without punishment
In the wake of media reports about “certain immoral happenings” in a college in Aruppukottai, Governor Banwarilal Purohit, also the Chancellor of all State-run universities in Tamil Nadu, on Monday announced a “high powered inquiry” by retired IAS officer R. Santhanam.
“It is important to enquire into such matters immediately and without prejudice so that the guilty do not escape without punishment,” a communication from Raj Bhavan stated on Monday evening.
The Governor’s move follows a report submitted by the Madurai Kamaraj University over the matter.
Mr. Santhanam has served as the Collector of the composite Ramanathapuram district. He had held several other senior positions before retiring in the grade of Chief Secretary to Government. He was also a Member of the Central Administrative Tribunal after his retirement.
