DALIT PANTHER’S State president R K Mahale today accused principal of the Institute of Hotel Management D K Agrawal and senior faculty S Rajmohan of gross irregularities and corruption in appointment of 36 employees in year 1989. All these posts were reserved for SC/ST persons but most of those appointed were from general category.

Addressing a press conference here today, Mahale along with other office-bearers of his outfit said that after the Right to Information Act was enforced, he sought information about the procedure followed in making those appointments. When he went to the Institute to collect papers on January 20, he was shut in a room and bashed up.

Mahale said that he had lodged an FIR in the matter with Habibganj police station and the police sent him for medical examination but did not register an FIR. On the other hand, FIR lodged by authorities of the Institute against him was
registered.

When asked why did he take so long to raise the issue of appointments made way back in 1989, Mahale said that he had all along been raising the issue but after Right to Information Act came into effect, he thought it would be easier to pin down Agrawal and Rajmohan for their follies.

But, instead of furnishing him with information, they got him roughed up inside the institute. He charged that an employee of the institute Madhukar Ambore, who is an office-bearer of his outfit, was suspended four months ago for his association with Dalit Panther. Ambore was also present at the press conference. When contacted for comment, S Rajmohan preferred to switch off his cell phone as he was presumably avoiding the press.
