New Delhi:

The University Grants Commission has formed a panel to probe the allegations of administrative negligence and misutilisation of funds by Manipur University vice chancellor Aditya Prasad Pandey, a source from the HRD Ministry said on Saturday.

“The panel was formed following a representation from the state government to HRD Ministry. The committee will submit its report by month-end, following which further action will be decided,” the source said.

Students of the university have been on strike for more than a month demanding the VC’s resignation and an independent probe against him.

“The state government feared a law and order situation and hence recommended the ministry to send Pandey on leave,” the source said.
