BENGALURU: The Education Department suspended an assistant professor working in the Government Engineering College at Chamarajanagar on charges of “explosive behaviour” and for resorting to “corporal punishment”. The suspended assistant professor is Gopal.

Under Secretary to the Education Department (Technical Education) S Venkatesh issued an order suspending Gopal on April 11. 

According to a copy of the order accessed by Express, Gopal was accused of misbehaving with students and conducting himself in a way unbecoming of a public servant, besides failing to adhere to his duty.

The students of the college had filed complaints with the college principal stating that the accused Gopal was misbehaving with them, using vulgar words in classes, threatening students that he will fail them in the examinations. He also tore books belonging to students and abused girls.

The principal then constituted a panel to conduct a preliminary inquiry. As all charges levelled against Gopal were found to be true, the principal requested the directorate of technical education to take disciplinary action.

After this, a panel was formed under the leadership of the joint director of technical education. 
The report submitted by this panel revealed that Gopal did not complete the syllabus. 

Gopal also allegedly threw a duster at the students, which is an attempt to assault students. 
This kind of “explosive behaviour and corporal punishment” is considered to be an act of threatening the lives of students, the inquiry report said.
