CHENNAI: A day after the suspended assistant professor Nirmala Devi was arrested for allegedly soliciting girl students to do “certain things” at the behest of senior Madurai Kamaraj University officials, the case has been transferred the case to the CB-CID.  

An order issued on Tuesday, on behalf of the director general of police, said the case has been transferred because of the significance of the case. 

The professor was arrested on Monday, after the police barged into her locked house at Aruppukottai in Virudhunagar district.

Nirmala Devi’s alleged phone conversation with four girl students of the Devanga Arts College in Aruppukottai - recordings of which leaked in social media in the last few days - suggest she had been trying to convince them to meet “certain expectations of the university officials”. As quid pro quo, she had promised support, “both academic and financial”.  

This led to protests from various teachers association and parents seeking a probe to bring out entire set of officials involved in this issue.
