CHENNAI: Almost a year before the three students of SVS Medical College of Yoga and Naturopathy and Research Institute at Kallakurichi in Villupuram district hit national headlines, Dr MGR Medical University had concluded that the complaints against the college were “found not proved”.

A report by university registrar Dr Jhansi Charles dated January 13, 2015 to one T Kannathasan, believed to be the father of one of the students who had petitioned various authorities alleging lack of infrastructure in the college, claims that the college had a pucca three-storyed building with required facilities like classrooms, library and other departments with necessary equipment, as reported by a team that conducted a surprise inspection on June 19, 2014.

Earlier, the university had conducted an enquiry on February 26, 2014, in view of the allegations, such as lack of facilities by the duly appointed enquiry committee. “The Committee concluded that complaints against the college found not proved,” said the report. In a series of eight petitions between 2013 and 2014, Kannathasan had complained to various authorities, including the Centre and State governments, National Commission for Scheduled Castes, Commissioner of Indian Medicine and Homoeopathy and the State Human Rights Commission among others raising allegations that there was lack of infrastructural facilities like hostel and basic amenities, lack of proper faculty and excess fees was collected by the institution.
