The Delhi high court on Monday dismissed a petition filed by Kirori Mal College principal Bhim Singh, challenging his suspension by Delhi University eight months ago.

Singh was suspended on August 1, 2012, after he held a press conference on July 30, in which he alleged that the college governing body chairman, Baleshwar Rai was involved in criminal cases and claimed complaints against him regarding financial irregularities

Rejecting Singh’s plea, justice Mukta Gupta said his conduct was “contrary” to the discipline and high standards required to be maintained in an educational institution.

In his petition, Singh had contended that the suspension order was “illegal and biased” and that the move was “with a malafide intention on the part of the university authorities”.
