Ayesha Kidwai said in a release. Kidwai said the hearings will take place at 5 PM from October 23-27. "If the VC fails to acknowledge or fails to appear, the hearings will be held ex-parte," the statement said. JNUTA listed a list of charges against the Vice Chancellor (VC) and asked him to specifically deny or admit each charge.
Some of the allegations included undermining the integrity of faculty selection process, violation of reservation policy, harassing teachers, denying their legitimate dues, undermining sexual harassment watchdog GSCASH and callous attitude in missing student Najeeb's case. Legal experts and eminent citizens were expected to chair the hearings and issue a judgement.
The Vice Chancellor did not respond when contacted for a reaction on the the JNUTA statement.
