Petitioning Shri Shiv Nadar and Prof. SK Som

Support Prof. Partha Pratim Chakrabarti

This petition is to urge you to take quick and appropriate action against the following news articles published in several national dailies (http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Coalnet-scam-CVC-for-action-on-3-IIT-professors/articleshow/18785923.cms ; http://www.dailypioneer.com/home/online-channel/360-todays-newspaper/130914-cvc-asks-hrd-ministry-to-fire-3-iit-professors.html) which not only tarnished the image of an outstanding academic and morally upright professor like Prof. P.P. Chakrabarti but also caused irreparable damage to the reputation of IIT Kharagpur.

It may be noted that Professor P. P. Chakrabarti is one of the most respected and beloved teachers of the institute, a President Gold Medal (PGM) and Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar award winner, an eminent researcher and administrator and a role model before generations of IITians for his unblemished love for the country and the institute.
We would request the Chairman BoG and the Director of the institute to take the following actions immediately as a first step towards clearing Prof PP Chakrabarti's name until the inquiry be complete, so that the damage of the reputation of the institute can be redeemed to some extent.
Key actions that we request the Chairman BoG and Director to take
a) A comprehensive press release making the institute's stand clear and clearing Prof. P.P. Chakrabarti’s name of any wrongdoings
b) Expediting the inquiry into the matter
c) Make all the documents public, as has been mentioned by Prof P.P. Chakrabarti also
