Replying to the call attention motion moved by BJP MLA Heeralal Nagar in the Rajasthan Assembly, Minister In-charge G C Kataria said investigation into the case was underway and the ACB will soon be submitting its report to the government.
In his motion, Nagar had said that even after two years of probe, the ACB's report was not out yet.
He also alleged that there was corruption and irregularities in several appointments especially in the appointment of the Vice Chancellor's son.
In his reply, Kataria also said that the charges levelled against the university's Vice-Chancellor for appointment of his son was found to be incorrect by the ACB.

The recruitment process of Kota university has been stayed, the minister said.
