Court dismisses bail plea of suspended vice-chancellor for second time

Covai Post Network

Coimbatore : A court here today dismissed the bail petition filed by suspended Bharathiar University vice-chancellor, A Ganapathy, the second time in the last fortnight.

Ganapathy was arrested and lodged in the central jail here on charges of demanding and accepting Rs.30 lakh from an Assistant Professor aspirant on February three.

As the plea seeking bail, filed on February 20 came up for hearing before the Special Court for Prevention of Corruption Act, Judge John Mino denied the bail and dismissed the petition filed by Ganapathy and another accused Professor Dharmaraj, who reportedly brokered the deal.

The prosecution put forward the argument that if let on bail, the accused were likely to tamper with the evidence. Hearing the arguments from both sides, Judge disissed the bail petition.

Ganapathy had filed a bail petition on February eight, which was rejected by the Court, who instead allowed the sleuths of Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption to take the accused in five days custody on February 12.
