After filing a summary report in the criminal case against Gujarat University (GU) Vice-Chancellor Parimal Trivedi due to lack of evidence,the deputy commissioner of police (Zone I) told the Metropolitan Magistrate on Monday that they are ready to re-investigate the matter if the complainant feels that police investigation has been inadequate. The DCP even stated that he is ready to handover the investigation to the SC/ST Cell of the city police.

Professor Pankaj Shrimal of GU had lodged a complaint against Trivedi last May under the provisions of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. He alleged that Trivedi had abused his caste when he approached him for an official matter in his office.

The Zone I police did not arrest Trivedi and instead filed a summary report in the court,saying that no evidence was available against the V-C.

However,Shrimal challenged the report and alleged that the police did not properly investigate the case and filed a summary report to absolve Trivedi.
