The Madras High Court has set aside the appointment of P P Chellathurai as Vice-Chancellor of Madurai Kamaraj University.
The first bench comprising Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice M Sundar delivered its judgement yesterday on petitions by M Lionel Antony Raj and from social activist 'Traffic' Ramaswamy challenging the appointment.
Chellathurai was appointed Vice-Chancellor of the university in May, 2017. The bench also directed re-constitution of the committee for selecting a panel of three names for appointment as MKU Vice-Chancellor. -- PTI
