The governing body of a Delhi University college has initiated an inquiry against its principal over alleged financial and administrative irregularities and directed him to proceed on indefinite leave.
Refuting the charges, the principal said, "I have never made such statements. He (Awana) had flouted the election code of conduct and the election committee of the college had nullified his election. Sinha intervened and revoked the order and called a governing body meeting Monday".
He said he was informed about the meeting only on Sunday and asked to suspend all academic and non-academic activities for Monday, which he refused.
Bakshi said he was denied entry and bouncers were deployed at the gates.
Sinha claimed Bakshi boycotted the meeting and even galvanized teachers to disrupt the programme.
"We have constituted an inquiry committee to look into the allegations against Bakshi since we have received many complaints against him. He (Bakshi) has been asked to go on leave so that he cannot influence the investigation against him," the chairman said.
