KOCHI:  PG Romeo, professor and head of the department of mathematics at Cusat, has moved the Kerala High Court challenging the appointment of  PM Mubarak Pasha as the first vice-chancellor of the Sree Narayana Guru Open University. He alleged that the appointment was made without a public notice, a search committee or a panel of candidates.

Romeo said the selection should be made by the proper identification of a panel of three to five names by a search committee through public notification. But these norms were not followed. The petitioner termed the selection arbitrary. Justice Devan Ramachandran has posted the case for hearing on October 27.
