Thiruvananthapuram, May 12 UNI | 2 months ago

Vice-Chancellor of Mahatma Gandhi (MG) University Dr A V George was today removed from service by Kerala Governor Sheila Dikshit here today.

His removal before the expiry of his term was due to wrong details provided in his biodata which he had submitted at the time of selection for the post, official sources said.

Earlier, the state government had submitted a report against George to the Governor, based on which the Governor took the action.

This was the first time that a Vice Chancellor of a University was sacked from the post before the expiry of his term.
