Tamil Nadu Police detain professor accused of luring students into sex work

State secretary K Balakrishnan insinuating that the Raj Bhavan could have a role in the incident, Governor Banwarilal Purohit quickly ordered a probe headed by retired IAS officer Santhanam into the entire episode (The Raj Bhavan press release made no reference to the party statement.) The CPI (M) leader in a statement made a reference to a recent report alleging that the Home Ministry was inquiring into sexual harassment complaints against a Governor of a south Indian State. She allegedly tried to lure four of her girl students into offering sexual favours in return for money and academic progress, including high marks in the annual exams.

Amidst high drama, the Aruppukottai Town Police picked up assistant professor Nirmala Devi of Devanga College here on Monday evening on the charge of attempting to traffic four girl students of the institution.

Nirmala Devi who was a maths teacher at the prestigious college in Virudhnagar locked herself up in her house after she found a tip of police personnel posted outside her house at Chokkalinga Nagar at noon. The incident came to light after an audio clip of the lady professor went viral on social media networking sites. She is also heard saying that some top officials from the Madurai Kamaraj University have handed over the task after carefully examining her for months.

"It is important to enquire into such matters immediately and without prejudice so that the guilty do not escape without punishment", the Governor said. Earlier, as the issue led to an outrage with the lecturer's remarks being perceived as suggestion of sexual favour, the State government and opposition parties lashed out at her. "I believe, being college students, you understand what they expect. The higher official I am referring to is not the governor, the old man, but someone of that stature", she said.

She says she can't take any names, as the officials are influential, and wants the conversation to remain secret. I don't know if you will tell your parents or not. During the recorded talk, Nirmala reportedly told the girls that she too had done "so" in her younger days and no harm befell her. "They tested me before revealing this matter wholly.,"she says. So we cannot offer any favour for the students as claimed in the audio", he said, alleging that there could have been a conspiracy over the circulation of the audio clip". "We demand an impartial probe into the issue to bring out all those powerful people behind the assistant professor", she said.
