New Delhi: A former Bishop of the Delhi Diocese has alleged that the chairman of the governing body of St Stephen's College has been appointed illegally.

Pritam B Santram, who has also been the ex-chairman of St Stephen's college, has lodged a complaint with the Church of North India in this regard.

"Bishop Warris Masih, who is the chairman of St Stephen's College governing body, has been appointed illegally as the rules of the college don't permit a Bishop of another Diocese assuming office here," Santram alleged.

He said that as per St Stephen's constitution, the chairman of the society and the governing body should be the 'Bishop of Delhi Diocese'.

"Bishop Warris Masih is the Bishop of the Rajasthan Diocese and is the Moderator's Commissary to the Delhi Diocese. The St Stephen's college constitution does not provide for any other person to be chairman,"?he said.

Santram demanded that all actions taken by Bishop Warris Masih with regard to the institution should be rendered illegal.
