An associate professor of DU is seeking permission to file an FIR against the Urdu department for the alleged irregularities in the PhD admission. For this he has also written a letter to the vice chancellor.
According to the professor, the committee which decides on admission tweaked the list, removed the signature of the professor along with the name of the deserving candidates.
The professor is also a member of the committee.
Khalid Alvi is an associate professor at the Zakir Hussain College (morning). On Thursday, he sent an e-mail to the vice chancellor, Yogesh Tyagi, informing about the same and followed it up on Friday with the letter.
“Sir, with due respect I have to state that the Urdu Department has arbitrarily and fraudulently changed the list of successful candidates for PhD course. As a member of DRC (Department Research Committee), I signed the list of selected candidates, but the declared list doesn't bear my signature. Even the name of a selected candidate, who happens to be topper of BA, MA, BEd and Entrance Test, was dropped. Kindly set up a high-level enquiry or allow me to file an FIR,” he said in the letter.
Speaking to IE Alvi said that the interviews of the candidates were held on August 30 and the final list was decided. "I had signed the list. But when the department released the list on September 5, it did not bear my signature. Moreover, a brilliant DU student's name was removed," alleged Alvi.
Tyagi was not available for answers on the matter.
