Gover­nor or­ders probe

The Hindu - - TAMIL NADU - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

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.
