NEW DELHI: A top JNU official who was leading the inquiry into missing student Najeeb Ahmad’s case besides other disciplinary issues on campus, has resigned from the post allegedly over some differences with the administration.
While Chief Proctor AP Dimri confirmed his resignation, he refused to share any details about the reasons behind it.
This is the second time that a chief proctor has resigned since the new vice-chancellor took over last January.
Dimri had taken over as Chief Proctor, when his predecessor had resigned citing personal reasons following the controversy on campus in February last year over an event during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.
University officials, also confirmed his resignation but refused to comment further, saying his letter doesn’t mention any reason.
The Proctor’s office is responsible for handling all the disciplinary issues on campus, including ordering of inquiry, probing the issues and recommending punishment for the students.
