Aligarh: Professor Sibghatullah Farooqui has
taken over as the acting Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim
University.

Farooqui, who took over on Monday, said he will convene a
meeting of the executive council on a priority basis to make
way for the selection of a full-time Vice Chancellor.

Meanwhile, the AMU Teachers Association yesterday
expressed serious concerns over last week`s violence in the
campus in which five students were injured.

It also sought immediate removal of varsity proctor over
the issue and for his alleged association with previous VC
Professor P K Abdul Azis, who is facing a CBI probe.

AMUTA secretary Professor Mustafa Zaidi said that proctor
is an ex-officio member of the executive council and hence,
will sit in its meeting to constitute the panel for the
selection of next VC.
