AMU suspends employee
Aligarh, May 13: AMU today suspended Mr Mazharul Qamar, Instructor (Weight Lifting), University Games Committee after his reply was found unsatisfactory.
Mr Qamar will be given an opportunity to explain his position in a time bound manner and an inquiry will be initiated.
The action against Mr Qamar was taken by the University authorities after Mr Qamar was reported to have visited the D S College in Aligarh where he felicitated Mr Goswami, who was booked and sent to jail for his alleged involvement in the attack on AMU that took place on May 2.
The University took a serious view of the matter and asked for an explanation from Mr Qamar within 24-hours.
The show-cause served to him stated, "You were aware that the person (Mr Goswami) was part of the group of hooligans who shouted abuses and slurs against the University, students and staff on reaching Bab-e-Syed and you met him despite the situation in the campus. You have hurt the sentiments of the AMU fraternity, particularly students, who are sitting on a Dharna demanding a probe in the matter." The show- cause further stated that what Mr Qamar did, is not expected from a responsible University employee.
