Chennai: DGP T K Rajendran today shifted the case of a woman lecturer luring students “to adjust with some officials” in return for higher marks and money, from the local police to the CB-CID.

"In view of the importance of the case, it is being shifted to CB-CID," said an official statement.

Tamilnadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit, the Chancellor of Madurai Kamaraj University to which the college is affiliated, set up a ‘high-powered inquiry committee' to look into ‘certain immoral’ happenings surrounding the lecturer.

Nirmala Devi, the lecturer of Devanga Arts College in Aruppukottai in Virudhunagar district, about 500 km from Chennai, was alleged to have made the overtures a month ago. But, the issue came to light after an audio of the purported conversation between her and some students went viral in social media.

In the audio, she is heard suggesting that the girls adjust with some (education) officials, “for getting 85 per cent marks and money”.
