Lucknow, May 26 (IANS) The Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gorakhpur University (DDUGU) in Uttar Pradesh has lodged a first information report (FIR) against its former vice-chancellor Arun Kumar and six teachers for financial and academic irregularities, an official said Monday. “The university’s apex body, Executive Council, recommended criminal proceedings against the former V-C along with six other officials for their involvement in financial and academic anomalies. Following this we lodged the FIR Sunday,” DDUGU officiating vice-chancellor P.K. Mahanti told IANS.
He charged that they had illegally admitted more students in the B.Ed. courses than the number of seats sanctioned and had also appointed ad-hoc teachers.
Arun Kumar was dismissed by Governor T.V. Rajeswar last August after an inquiry by then Gorakhpur divisional commissioner Rajeev Kumar.
