The city police have let off former Bangalore University (BU) Syndicate member Dr K B Vedamurthy after recording his statements over an alleged marks scam that has hit the university.

Vedamurthy was taken into custody on Monday by Halasoor Gate police after two others were arrested. Vedamurthy’s alleged involvement was mentioned by the two accused.

DCP (Central) B R Ravikanthe Gowda said, “We have collected some information during our inquiry. We have recorded Vedamurthy’s statements. He has denied any involvement. We have also collected information from him on this case. We are collecting evidence to strengthen our investigation.”

Meanwhile, Registrar (Evaluation) K N Ninge Gowda met  Ravikanthe Gowda on Tuesday and assured full cooperation towards the probe.

“The success of the inquiry depends on how well the university cooperates with the police. We have already seized the valuation rooms belonging to the Directorate of Correspondence Courses and Distance Education on Central College campus,” he said.

A Syndicate meeting has been convened on April 25 to finalise plans of action from the university’s end, he said.
