Kochi: The High Court today stayed the nomination of seven heads of departments of Kerala University to the varsity's senate made by governor R S Gavai.

The order was issued by Justice C T Ravikumar on a petition by Dr Tresa Radhakrishnan, head of department of Aquatic Biology and Fisheries, University of Kerala, challenging the nomination made by the governor in his capacity as the University Chancellor.

The petitioner contended that as per the university Act, nomination of HoDs to the senate was done on the basis of seniority and by way of rotation.

However, the present nominations were made without considering seniority, he submitted.
