Covai Post Network

COIMBATORE: A Special Court here on Monday allowed police to take the suspended Bharathiar University Vice-Chancellor, A. Ganapathy, into custody till February 16 for interrogation.

Directorate of Vigilance and Anti Corruption (DVAC) had arrested Ganapathy for demanding and accepting Rs.30 lakh from a Assistant Professor aspirant, including Rs. 1 lakh in chemically treated currency.

Even as Ganapathy, along with a professor, Dharmaraj, who brokered the deal was lodged in the Central Jail under judicial custody, DVAC has filed a petition in the Special Court for Prevention of Corruption Act seeking his custody for five days for interrogation.

As the petition came up for hearing, Special Judge John Mino allowed the DVAC to take Ganapathy till February 16 and asked produce before him on that day.
