VISAKHAPATNAM: Andhra University’s former vice-chancellor GSN Raju gave his explanation on the allegations against him to the three-member committee, appointed by the state government. The committee headed by former Principal Secretary of the  Higher Education Department, Ashutosh Mishra, is on a visit to the AU for the second day to probe the charges against Prof Raju. The charges were that Prof Raju misused the administrative powers during his tenure as the V-C, particularly during the last few months before retirement. Tension prevailed at the AU campus on Saturday evening, during GSN Raju’s  arrival for deposition before the team. Rival student unions gathered at the varsity. While one group shouted slogans hailing Raju, another group of students raised slogans against the former VC. The team members interacted with Raju for about an hour, where they had reportedly took details regarding appointments and PhD admissions. The team will prepare a report and would submit it to the government.
