Calicut University assistant suspended for taking bribe from student and forgery too

Thenhipalam (Malappuram): After the recent arrest of an office staff at Mahatma Gandhi University (MGU), another fraud involving a varsity employee has come to light. It is at the Calicut University (CU) that the latest malpractice was detected and M K Mansoor Ali, a temporary assistant there, was suspended by Registrar Dr E K Satheesh.

Ali has been charged with cheating a girl student of Rs 5,000 by falsely promising to provide her degree certificate and also defrauding the university by not remitting the requisite fees. The student, belonging to Malappuram, had filed a complaint against Ali for collecting a bribe of Rs 5,000 to issue her degree certificate. Subsequently, the university authorities discovered that Ali had added the number ‘13’ to the challan for Rs 50 paid by the complainant, making the amount Rs 1350.  Ali had then attached the challan to her application for degree certificate which was filed in the examination section.

Yet another fraud

Incidentally, Calicut University is also conducting an internal probe into another complaint against a staff member. In this case, a girl student had alleged that a varsity official had collected Rs 500 instead of Rs 5 to carry out a correction in her degree certificate. “The preliminary inquiry into this complaint is yet to be completed. As soon as it is over, action will be taken against this official also,” said the Registrar.
