Manipur varsity Chancellor to institute probe into postings
The Governor of Manipur and Chancellor of Manipur University, SS Sidhu, have agreed to institute a probe into alleged irregularities in the appointment of the Director, Audio Video Research Studies.
"Such an inquiry will make the activities of the university more transparent," a release from the Chancellor's office said.
The Manipur University Students' Union (MUSU) had, in a memorandum submitted to Sidhu, demanded a probe into the alleged irregularities.
Both the university's Vice Chancellor and the Registrar had been abducted by a militant outfit last month and were later released with bullet wounds, as "punishment", the militants said, for irregularities committed in the appointment of the Director.
