A teachers' body of the Delhi University on Saturday demanded removal of vice chancellor Prof Deepak Pental on the issue of auctioning of radioactive materials.

Delhi University Teachers' Association (DUTA) met here and decided to hold a demonstration in front of the vice chancellor's office on the issue on Wednesday.

DUTA on Friday had demanded the resignation of Pental.

"Pental has taken moral responsibility but he is not resigning from the post. Hence, we are demanding for his removal," DUTA president Prof A N Mishra said after the meeting of the executive committee of the association.

DUTA has demanded an impartial inquiry into the whole episode.

"We have no trust in the present inquiry committee set up by the university. The person who is heading the panel is close to the vice chancellor. This inquiry is an eyewash," Mishra alleged.

He claimed that the radioactive material was sold with the approval of vice chancellor Pental.

Meanwhile, a section of faculty member and staff in the Chemistry department are of the view that the radioactive material was sold by the head of department V S Parmar with the permission of Pental.
