University of Kerala former Vice Chancellor P.K. Radhakrishnan on Thursday said that the university Syndicate was adopting a vengeful stance against him. It was on Wednesday the Syndicate decided to recommend a Crime Branch probe against him.

In a statement, Dr. Radhakrishnan accused the Syndicate of dragging him into a controversy in a bid to malign him for complaining to Governor P. Sathasivam about the qualifications of some of the Syndicate members nominated by the State government on an interim basis.

Referring to his article in a weekly, the ex-VC denied having committed any criminal offence. He has been accused of identifying the teacher who had been entrusted with revaluing the answer sheets of an LLB examination paper.

He wondered why the Syndicate was not enthused about undertaking projects that had been in limbo for long. He cited the alleged failure in utilising the Rs. 5 crore received by the university three years ago as the first Chancellor’s Award prize money. He said he would file civil and criminal complaints against those attempting to malign him.
