The inquiry committee has also recorded their statements, which would soon be followed by action, the VC added.

Dr Imtiaz said strict action has been taken to make the varsity affairs transparent so that there is no irregularity or fraud in the future, adding that no official involved in such practices would not be pardoned. He said efforts are being made to get back the educational certificates from those people in case of availability of their addresses; otherwise, the option to launch legal action is available.
