HC upholds show-cause notice to ex-DMK minister's engg college

Upholding the February 2 notice, the court also rejected the plea of Tiruvannamali-based Arunai College of Engineering, of which former minister E V Velu, is the founder-Chairman, to include it in the ongoing counselling for admission to engineering courses for 2012-13.

The university in its notice had sought to know why the approval granted to the college should not be withdrawn for all PG courses for one year. It had also asked the college why its affiliation by the university should not be withdrawn.

The college is facing charges of malpractices and irregularities in the mater of holding examinations to a particular student. His attendance had been tampered with and fake internal marks awarded to him.

In the counter, the Chairman said he took over the management of the college trust from May 15 last year and "prompt" corrective actions including dismissal of the Principal were taken.

The student was also removed from the college rolls. Passing orders, Justice K.Chandru said the punishment imposed would not absolve the responsibility of the college. Even in its reply, the college had not denied the incident.

Therefore, it could not be said that the university had issued the notice without any material.
