Kerala University VC’s decision to suspend HOD calls in protest

univemblemThiruvananthapuram: A move to suspend the biochemistry department head G Muraleedhara Kurup from service for alleged ‘attempt for misappropriation of university funds’ by the Kerala University vice-chancellor P K Radhakrishnan has spurted to new controversy, as the academic community has expressed strong dissatisfaction over the VC’s decision.

The teachers’ association members and a large number of students of biochemistry department staged a protest dharna at the university on Thursday and wanted the University to reverse its decision.

The academic community feels the VC’s pronouncement as a vindictive one. Kurup is about to retire next week.
