Chennai, July 17 (UNI) Madras High Court today ordered notice to the Vice-Chancellor of the Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirapalli, the CBCID Inspector General of Police and four others on a writ petition, seeking action against the varsity authorities for allegedly committing large scale malpractices and tampering with the Tabulated Mark Register (TMR) of engineering examinations.
Admitting the petition, the First Bench, comprising Chief Justice A K Ganguly and Mr Justice F M Ibrahim Kalifullah, directed the Government and university authorities to file their counter within three weeks.
The petitioner, Mr N S Ziauddeen, a social worker, submitted that during January 2004, it was reported to the varsity Controller of Examination with evidence that there were many irregularities and tampering with the TMR in the result copies of November, 2003, engineering examinations. The said irregularities were brought to the notice of the Syndicate, which appointed an Inquiry Committee to go into the matter.
Finding too many irregularities, the Committee had recommended that the entire case be entrusted with the CBCID for further probe and the Syndicate also did so.
''The CBCID has completed the investigation and recommended to the State Government to initiate criminal action against those involved in the scandal, but no action has been taken till today,'' he said and sought the court's interference in the matter to initiate criminal action against the erring persons.
