A woman clerk of a college on Wednesday filed a complahnt petition in a local court accusing senior Bihar minister Anil Kumar of misbehaving with her during an inspection of the college exactly two mofths back.
Kumar, the state's science and technology minister however, denied the charge saying it was an attempt to thwart a vigilance probe he ordered after finding financiaL irregularities in records of the college.
The clerk Soni Kumari filed a complaint in the court of chief judIcial magistrate here charging Kumar and other officials with 'being rude and misbehaving' with her during inspection of S N Sinha College at Tekari in Gaya district.
The minister along with district officials like sub-divisional magistrate H N Dubey made the surprise inspection of the college on June 5.
When contacted, Kumar said a committee led by him during inspection of the college records found 'glaring irregularities' in finances and has recommended a probe into it by the state vigilance bureau.
He said, "A deliberate attempt is being madE through the complaint to pre-empt the inquiry."
"A conspiracy seems to have been hatched to defame me. It is a sinister character assassination attempt and I will fight it legally by moving an appropriate court for dEfamation," he said.
