Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal
Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad workers protested outside the Police Commissioner’s office on Sunday afternoon demanding strict action against the culprits in the ongoing financial corruption case at Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya (RGPV), Bhopal. They raised slogans against the police department and the corrupt. Earlier, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) had surrounded Gandhi Nagar police station two days ago. A memorandum in this regard was also given to the Police Commissioner on Friday.

The preliminary report of the investigation conducted by the inquiry committee formed as a result of the movement by ABVP Bhopal unit, has revealed widespread corruption and financial irregularities in the university. In the context of this investigation report, an FIR was lodged under serious sections by the University Administration in Gandhi Nagar Police Station against the guilty persons in the case.

Protesters said the police administration not arresting even a single major accused is not only surprising but also raises questions on the police system. Somewhere in this, the lax attitude of the police administration raises doubts. Taking cognizance of this entire matter, the criminals should be arrested immediately to take appropriate action against the culprits. Therefore, today Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad workers wearing black clothes surrounded the Commissioner’s office and also demanded immediate arrest.

What is the whole matter?

Recently, ABVP Bhopal Mahanagar had demonstrated against the ongoing economic corruption in RGPV of the capital, after which the accused were exposed. After registering an FIR against 5 people including Vice Chancellor Dr Sunil Kumar, the police arrested one accused Mayank Kumar and did not take action against the remaining accused. Some accused fled out of the state, while some left the country and fled abroad. But ABVP says that the police should take strict action and the culprits should be punished, if the police administration works with a lax attitude then ABVP will be forced to intensify agitation. Despite the FIR being registered, not a single major accused has been arrested by the police administration.

Police raid registrar’s house

Meanwhile, a day earlier on Saturday the Special Investigation Team (SIT) raided the house of former (RGPV) registrar RS Rajput in connection with financial irregularities and found it locked.

The police came to know that Rajput was not at home for the last 15-20 days and he is on the run.

“We had information that his wife is at home but she too was not found and the house was locked,” a member of the SIT told Free Press.

A massive search has been launched to nab Rajput, who is one of the accused in multi-crore scam at RGPV.
