Angered by comments that hurt religious sentiments, local activists allegedly belonging to right wing Hindu organisations Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Wednesday brutally beat a college professor working at Dr Ambedkar College  »

Malegaon: One of the accused arrested by the Dhule police on Thursday in a criminal case involving physical assault on a college professor is a senate member of North Maharashtra University, it is learnt on Friday.


After the disclosure, two Dhule based organisations have demanded from the university authorities to cancel his membership. The organisations are also demanding from the university to rusticate the students who were allegedly involved in inviting the activists allegedly linked with Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal - the right wing Hindu extremist organisations known for fomenting violence in the name of religion.


"Teaching and non-teaching staff members of Dr Ambedkar College of Social Work in a letter sent to the university have demanded cancellation of the senate membership of Yogesh Mukande, who they alleged was involved in an attack on Prof Pramod Sukhdev Bhumbe", Vice Chancellor of North Maharashtra University, Dr Sudhir Meshram, said while talking to


He said similar demand had also been raised by Dhule Zilla Annyay & Atyachar Neweran Sanghatna.


Police had arrested six persons including Yogesh Mukande - all said to be the activists of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal on Thursday following a complaint filed by Prof Bhumbe.


In his complaint, Prof Bhumbe alleged that the accused had on Wednesday entered the premises of Dr Ambedkar College shouting slogans and abusing him. They later turned violent and started beating him even as other college staff tried to pacify them.


According to the police, the accused were angry over some of the remarks made by Prof Bhumbe. They alleged that the remarks made by Prof Bhumbe were against Hindu religion and hurt their religious sentiments.


President of Dhule Zilla Anayay & Atyachar Neweran Saghatna Chandrawveer Bhuarao Sawde in his complaint to the Vice Chancellor stated said that they wanted immediate withdrawal of the senate membership of Yogesh MunKande against whom a criminal case was filed by the police.

“People with criminal records do not deserve to be member of such a prestigious body. We demand from the university to remove him from the coveted body”, he said.


Taking cognisance of the complaints and allegations leveled against Yogesh Mukande, the North Maharashtra University on Friday initiated the procedure under university rules for taking action against him.

“We have initiated the procedure for taking action as per the university rules and regulations against Yogesh Mukande following his arrest in the criminal case. I will be nominating a committee to probe the allegations and its report will be submitted to the University Chancellor who will then take the final decision”, the Vice Chancellor said.
