'Bar AMU VC from selection committee'

Aligarh: Aligarh Muslim University Teachers’ Association (AMUTA) on Wednesday requested the President to bar AMU Vice Chancellor Prof PK Abdul Azis from playing any role in selection committee.

"This step has become necessary because the the VC is facing probes by the CBI, CVC and the CAG on charges of alleged financial misappropriation," Secretary AMUTA Mustafa Zaidi told reporters here.

Azis should not be allowed to participate in crucial exercise of making appointments, he said.

AMU spokesman, Rahat Abrar when contacted said that so far they have not received any official information regarding any such probe. Therefore, the question of offering any explanation on the teachers' demand does not arise.

"We have seen some media reports to this effect and we cannot react to such reports until we have any official confirmation of such probes," he added.
