A group of former teachers of the Jagadguru Rambhadracharya Handicapped University,Chitrakoot,on Tuesday demanded that the government should remove Chancellor Swami Rambhadracharya so that the investigation into the alleged fraud and bungling of funds by him and other university officials did not get influenced.
A case registered under various sections of the IPC,including 420 (fraud),466 (forgery of record),and Prevention of Corruption Act,is being investigated by the Vigilance Establishment. The FIR was lodged at Karvi police station of Chitrakoot against Gita Devi,secretary of the university,Rambhadracharya and three others in February.
The accused are alleged to have filled the vacancies in the university with ineligible candidates using forged certificates and misused UGC funds.
Speaking at a press conference,Arjun Singh,a former teacher,said the government should remove Rambhadracharya and appoint a new administrator till the investigation is completed.
The university was established in 2001,and Rambhadracharya was made its lifelong Chancellor by the state government.
