Students of KSG College of Arts and Science have petitioned the District Collector Archana Patnaik and Police Commissioner A.K. Viswanathan on October 19, along with representatives from the college management to take action against Krishnakumar Vijayaraman, the former Principal of the college for allegedly collecting fee for soft skill training programme without conducting such classes.
The students had also stated that Vijayaraman had collected Rs. 2000 each from 2500 students in the college for conducting the sessions without the knowledge of the management but had eventually resigned the job on 29 September 2015 saying that he was insulted by the management.
According to K.S. Gita, the Correspondent of the college, Vijayaraman had entered the college on September 27 with a small bag and had exited with larger bags as CCTV footages show. She added that Vijayaraman along with three professors from the college had cheated the students of over Rs. 3 crore and had further taken all the documents of proof before resigning.
However, Vijayaraman had sent a legal notice to the college stating that he was framed with the issue and in a letter to the Correspondent Vijayaraman had stated that he had done all that with her knowledge adding that she was aware of all the scams.
Denying allegations, Gita said that she would face all the cases legally and requested the District Administration to take severe action against him.
“We had petitioned the Collector and the Police Commissioner, yet they are hesitant in taking action. We completely rely on the police to provide justice in this case for the benefit of the students,” she said.
She further added that if no actions was forthcoming soon, the management would stage a protest in Coimbatore.
