New Delhi :  

President Pranab Mukherjee has given his approval for a probe into allegations of financial and other improprieties against Aligarh Muslim University’s (AMU) Vice Chancellor Zameer Uddin Shah.

The nod of the President, who is also the Visitor to the University, comes on a proposal from the HRD Ministry to which former Janata Dal MP Wasim Ahmed had given a memorandum seeking a probe into allegations against the Vice Chancellor.

Mukherjee’s action also follows approval of a similar probe against Allahabad University Vice Chancellor R L Hangloo.

Ahmed, a member of the AMU executive council, welcomed the approval for probe against the AMU Vice Chancellor saying it was long overdue. Shah on the other hand has denied all allegations against him saying some vested interests were carrying out a campaign against him.
