The HRD Ministry on Friday formed a three-member committee to probe into allegations of irregularities against Allahabad University VC Rattan Lal Hangloo, officials said. The move comes after President Ram Nath Kovind, who is also the visitor of the university, accepted the resignation letter of Hangloo submitted earlier this week. "A three-member panel has been formed to probe the allegations of academic, financial and administrative irregularities against Hangloo," an official told PTI.
Hangloo had resigned on Wednesday. He was under the scanner since 2016 over irregularities. Hangloo was also summoned by the National Commission for Women (NCW) last week over allegations of improper handling of sexual harassment complaints and lack of grievance redressal mechanism for female students.
