Slamming the VC’s decision, HC stays the suspension of HOD

Scales-of-Justice-360x3313Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala University vice-chancellor’s decision to suspend the head of biochemistry department G Muraleedhara Kurup from service on the basis of allegations that the latter had tried to indulge in misappropriation of University funds was stayed by the High Court, Monday.

The court’s order came when Kurup filed a plea earlier, stating that the VC’s action was deceptive and that there was no valid ground for the suspension since the university has not lost money because of any action by him.

The court also said the varsity should make arrangements immediately to reinstate him into service and he should be allowed to retire without further hassles. The next hearing of the case has been posted for April 9.
