Arunachal Pradesh Central University’s VC resigns over 'lewd' email
24 Jan 2011

The vice chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi University in Arunachal Pradesh has resigned from his post after he was found guilty of sending ‘unacceptable lewd email’ to a female faculty member. K.C. Belliappa sent his resignation letter to the President on December 31, 2010 mentioning that he was quitting as vice-chancellor of the Itanagar-based Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU). According to the official sources, president has accepted his resignation.

 

The letter came after a one-man fact-finding panel to the Union Human resource Development Ministry submitted its report on Belippa’s misconduct. The probe panel was headed by Former bureaucrat M P Bezbaruah. Belippa’s ouster was not just because of this reason. According to the university sources, he had been on a collision course with the varsity chancellor – Arunachal Pradesh governor J.J. Singh – as well the RGU students, teachers and non-teaching staff unions after joining in 2007.

Meanwhile, students of the university are happy with Belliappa’s exit, “We are happy that a tainted person is no longer running our university, though some bureaucrats in the ministry were trying to hush up the report against Belliappa,” said RGU Students’ Union president Mohan Gyadi.

K.C. Belliappa came under the scanner last year when an associate professor filed an FIR against him. The Special Investigation Team of the state police subsequently arrested Belliappa. The former VC shifted to Delhi after his release to escape the wrath of agitating students and teachers.

Rajiv Gandhi University is a central University under the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India. The University has been converted to a central university by an act of parliament with effect from 9 April, 2007. Rajiv Gandhi University was formerly known as Arunachal University. The Arunachal University was established by the state government of the state of Arunachal Pradesh, in the year of 1984. In 2005 the same has been renamed as Rajiv Gandhi University.
