Notice to government on plea against Aligarh varsity head

Tuesday December 13, 2011 07:22:51 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Tuesday issued notice to the central government on a plea alleging non-enforcement of the government's order restraining Aligarh Muslim university Vice Chancellor P.K. Abdul Azis from taking policy decisions after a CBI inquiry was ordered against him for alleged financial lapses.

Issuing notices to the human resource development ministry, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the University Grants Commission (UGC), the AMU and Azis, Justice M.L. Mehta sought their replies by Jan 11, 2012.

Justice Mehta also stayed a meeting of the university's executive council, scheduled to be held earlier in the day under the supervision of Azis, for selection of five names for a successor to Azis who retires Jan 17, 2012.

The court was hearing a petition filed by convener of the AMU Anti-Corruption Forum and university's Associate Professor Madihur Rehman Suhaib.

The plea sought a court direction to the central government for action against Azis for defying the ministry's order restraining him from taking administrative or policy decisions.

It said the ministry Aug 10 issued a notification restraining Azis from taking any administrative or policy decision.

"Showing complete disregard to ministry's notification, Azis continued to take administrative and financial decisions," the lawyer said.

The petitioner sought a status report detailing the inquiry and action taken against Azis on the allegations levelled against him by members of the executive council.

"Extremely grave charges of financial and administrative irregularities, were levelled against the VC (vice chancellor)," said the petitioner's counsel R.M. Tufail.

"He (Azis) has the dubious distinction of being the only VC in the glorious history of the AMU against whom charges of extreme grave financial irregularities were levelled by none other than the eight honourable members of the executive council of the university," the petition said.

Azis faced charges of financial irregularities even during his tenure as VC of Cochin University of Science and Technology, before joining the AMU, it said.
