Chief Proctor resigns over JNU row – Today’s Paper – The Hindu

Upset at the way the JNU administration had handled the probe into the February 9 incident, the Chief Proctor of the university, Krishna Kumar, resigned from his position on February 29.

According to university documents in possession with The Hindu, a proctorial committee was formed on February 11 to investigate the incident in which anti-national slogans were raised. But four hours later, the proctorial committee was superseded by a “high-level inquiry committee.”

To add insult to injury, Mr Kumar was made to sign the letter debarring eight students — Kanhiaya Kumar, Anirban Bhattacharya, Shweta Raj, Umar Khalid, Anant Prakash, Rama Naga, Aishwarya Adhikari and Ashutosh Kumar.

Sources said Mr Kumar was being used as a rubber stamp.
