GN Saibaba, professor of English at Ram Lal Anand College, University of Delhi who was suspended from the university due to his alleged Maoist links has been asked by the college not to enter the campus premises before seeking approval as it creates “law and order” problems. The principal Dr. Vijay Sharma has warned him and termed his act as unauthorised and unwarranted conduct.
Following are some major lines from the recent letter by college authorities to Mr. Saibaba:
“It has come to our knowledge that you have entered the classrooms of the college and held an interactive session with the students. The governing body has taken serious note of your unauthorised conduct of entering the classes during suspension without any written permission.”
“Your entry inside the class is unwarranted as during suspension you are not required to teach the students. You are directed not to enter the college without permission as it creates law and order problems. Violation of this will be treated as misconduct and interference in activities of the college and you shall be liable for further action for the same.”
Background: Mr Saibaba was suspended from the University of Delhi following his arrest by the Maharashtra police in 2014 for his alleged Maoist links. He was lodged in the Nagpur Central Jail for 14 months and granted bail in July 2015 after the court noticed his deteriorating health condition. Read the case here: Police Raid in Teacher’s House
