BANGALORE: Bangalore University Vice-Chancellor Dr N Prabhu Dev has probably become the first VC of a public university in the state to be accused of atrocities against SC/ST communities. On Friday, a formal complaint was lodged in the Jnana Bharathi police station against Prabhu Dev by the Bangalore University Non-Teaching Staff SC/ST Association.

The decision comes in the backdrop of University Engineer (UE) N Putta Swamy suffering a heart attack after he was accused by the VC for delaying the issue of work order to the contractor for the construction of the remaining buildings at the Kolar PG Centre.

Sources said that Jnana Bharathi police would visit Putta Swamy for an official statement on the matter to proceed further.  When contacted, VC Prabhu Dev maintained that he knew nothing about the complaint or Putta Swamy’s heart attack. When asked whether the University’s plan to inaugurate the Kolar PG Centre on March 15 would get delayed because of Swamy’s ill-health, he said, “I can comment after I get more information.”
