A probe has been ordered into alleged financial irregularities by Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University, a charge denied by varsity administration on Monday.
The probe would "lead to turmoil in the campus", a statement issued by the university administration on behalf of VC P K Abdul Aziz said demanding rollback of the enquiry order.
The AMU Teachers Association, however, welcomed the move and said, "if the VC's slate is clean, then he should welcome this probe."
The probe followed eight members of AMU's executive council submitting a memorandum to President Pratibha Patil (who is the visitor to AMU) on April 6 this year alleging financial wrong doings by the vice chancellor.
The members accused Aziz of "blatantly" and "recklessly" violating all the standard financial norms and proprieties during his 21 month tenure as the vice chancellor.
