Patna, Bihar: WhatsApp? Professor saab sexted some hot stuff to one of his lady students, and now he’ll be hanging around soon… the University chaps are going to suspend him.
‘Action’ looms against the physics department teacher of AN College, Patna, accused of sending an ‘objectionable’ text on WhatsApp to a girl student of the department. A ‘three-man’ committee of Magadh University (MU) constituted by VC Mohd Ishtiyaque busy ‘probing into’ the allegation submitted its report to him on Wednesday.
The team consisted of MU Dean of Students’ Welfare Sita Ram Singh, College of Commerce principal Baban Singh and senior PG chemistry department teacher Nand Kishore Yadav visited A N College, Patna, on Tuesday. Prof Singh said the committee prepared its report on the basis of interaction with the victim girl, her parents, the accused teacher, students of the college and members of the college inquiry committee set up earlier by college principal Lallan Singh.
“A few other girls also told the committee about similar type of obscene messages sent to them on WhatsApp by the accused teacher. A student of MSc first year made a similar allegation against him,” a probe panel member said. A section of girl students have urged the MU VC to suspend the accused and institute criminal cases against him.
Sources said the teacher is of ‘dubious character’. Several girls of the college had complained about his misbehaviour in the past as well. However, the matter came to light only when the complainant took serious note of the message sent to her on WhatsApp. She informed her parents who met college principal and registered a complaint in writing against the teacher on April 24.
A N College principal had set up a seven-member investigation committee with four female and three male teachers of the college. Later, the college administration apprised MU VC of the development and the latter constituted the three-member probe team.
