H. E. President, Sir/ Madam,

Vanakkam!

1)     The audio record of the Telephonic Conversation in Tamil Language between the accused Professor Mrs. Nirmala Devi and the four Girl students, which is broadcasted at the live news by the Sathyam Television Channel on 16 Apr 2018, is uploaded at the Youtube vide website url https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2fpcjRNdxA and the copy of video of the same is also enclosed, wherein it discloses the below allegations:

a.      இந்த ஸ்கீமுக்குள்ள வந்தீங்கன்னா எம்.கே. யுனிவர்சிட்டி பேக் போனா இருக்கும் said in Tamil means that, “if you come under this scheme, M.K. University will work as your back bone”

d.      நெக்ஸ்ட் வீக் பெரிய அசைன்மன்ட் இருக்கு.  நான் என்ன அசைன்மண்டுன்கிறது, இப்போ நெறைய விஷயங்கள் அவங்க வந்து என்னைய டெஸ்ட் பண்ணிக்கிட்டு, அதுக்கப்புறமே சொன்ன விஷயங்கள்தான் இவ்வளவு.  என்னையவே அவங்க நெறைய செக் பண்ணிட்டாங்க.  அப்ப செக் பண்ணிட்டுதான் இந்த விசயங்கள என்கிட்டே சொன்னாங்கனாக்க ரொம்ப ரொம்ப ஹையர் அபிசியல்.  எதுவுனாலும் சாதிக்க முடியும்கிறனாலதான் நான் இதை சஜஸ்ட் பண்றேன், said in Tamil means that, “Next week there is a great assignment;  what is the assignment means, I have said all these things, after they tested me in many matters; Even they tested me a lot. After testing me, these matters have been told to me by the very very Higher Official.  I am suggesting this because, anything can be achieved.

e.      ஈச் அண்ட் எவெரி ப்ரோகிராமிலையும், உங்களுக்கு தெரியுமா தெரியாதான்னு எனக்கு தெரியாது, என்னை இன்டிவ்சுவல் இன்விட்டேசன் ச்பெசலைசேசன் பண்ணி இருந்தாங்க, இதுவரைக்கும் பலவிசயங்கள்ள. ஈவன் சோ மெனி டைம்ஸ்ல நூற்றி பத்து பேரு, நாங்க அங்க கோர்ஸ் பண்ணிக்கிட்டு இருக்கோம் அங்க.  நூற்றி பத்து பேரு நாங்க அட்டன்ட் பண்ற கோர்சுல மாத்திரம் இதேமாதிரி நானூறு பேர் பண்றாங்க.  நானூறு பேர்ல ஒன் ஆப் தா என்னு ட்ரீட் பண்ணி என்ன எக்சிகியூட்டி பண்ணாங்க.  பியூர் அப்சர்வேஷன்ல தான் நான் இருக்க முடியும்.  பியூர் பியூர் அப்சர்வேஷன், அத நான் அவங்க கிட்ட கன்வே பண்ணுனேன். அத அவங்க அக்சப்ட் பண்ணாங்க.  உங்களுக்கு கவர்னர் வர்ற வீடியோ எல்லாம் அனுபியிருன்தேன் இல்ல. அப்ப சில விசயங்கள் என்ன நடந்துச்சி, அது நீங்க என்ன புரிஞ்ச்சீங்க, அதாவது நடுவுல ஒரு ஸ்க்ரீன் இல்லாம இருக்கும் கவர்னர் லெவல். கவர்னர் தாத்தா இல்ல. நான் சொல்லவர்றது அந்த கவர்னர் மீட்டிங்ல வீடியோ வந்து நான் எந்த அளவு பக்கத்துல இருந்து எடுத்திருக்கேன்னு ஒங்களுக்கு தெரியும்.  அந்த அளவுக்கு இங்க மூவ் பண்ற அளவுக்கு இங்க எனக்கு அல்லோவன்ஸ் இருக்கு, லிபெரலைசேசன் இருக்கு. அது இலைமறைகாயாக பளிச்சின்னு நாலு பேருக்கு தெரியாத அளவுல இருக்கு.  நான் இப்ப யாருன்னு ஒங்க கிட்ட சொல்லிட்டேன்னா இன்னும் கொஞ்சம் வேகமா நீங்க அசுரன்ஸ் கொடுக்கிறதுக்கு சந்தர்ப்பம் இருக்குங்கிற ஒரு ஹின்று மட்டும் தான் நான் கொடுப்பேன்.  ஏன்னா அவங்க அந்த அளவுக்கு சீக்ரசி பிரைவசி மெய்ண்டைன் பண்ணிக்கிட்டு இருக்காங்க, said in Tamil means that, "I don't knew, whether you know or not, each and every program, even so many times, I have received Individual Special Invitation in many occasions.  One hundred and ten people attending this course has been done only by four hundred persons.  Among the four hundred persons, they selected only me to execute this matter.  Has to be under pure observation.  I conveyed it to them and they accepted.  I have sent you the video with the Governor.  In that video few things happened, whether you understood or not, you can realise that there is much closeness without separating screen between me and Governor level.  Governor is not a grandfather.  What I want to say is, how much closely I have taken the video during the meet with Governor.  I have that much influence, permission and liberty to move with.  Such activities are not visible like fruit under leaf by being not known to even four persons.  I am giving you a hint, as who is that person, so that you can give your assurance very soon. Because they maintain such a secrecy and privacy.”

2)     The enclosed copy of Final Seniority List of Examiners As on 31/10/2016 published by the Madurai Kamaraj University has included the accused Nirmala Devi as the Examiner and the details were as below:

Sl. No : 134
Centre Code : 301
Name of the Examiner : Dr. P. Nirmala Devi
Mobile no : 9524136928
Designation : Assistant Professor
Name of the college : Devanga Arts College, Arupukottai.
Date of birth : 12/June/1972
Date of joining : 3/Jan/2008
Date of retirement : 12/Jun/2030
Total years : 8
Total months : 9
Total days : 28
 

3)     The Devanga Arts College has been granted Autonomy for the first time w.e.f. 2006-2007 and it is valid from 2012-2013 upto 2017-2018.  If the grant of Autonomy continues, the competent authorities of the college will misuse its powers to take revenge over the students connected to this issue it will be a threat for students who has taken initiatives to bring this illegal and criminal activity into light through the media with valid evidences, because an autonomous college has given the authority of evaluating the answer sheets of their students for the semester exams through their own teaching faculties.  Hence, there is no doubt that these four girl students as witnesses for this case and also the other students of this college, involved in protest demanding legal action against the accused Nirmala Devi may be spoiled through the teaching faculties and management of the college, by taking revenge on these students on evaluating the answer sheets by reducing the marks or even fail them in subjects.  Hence, the grant of autonomy has to be cancelled with immediate effect by the University Grant Commission.

4)     The accused Nirmala Devi says that, “Governor is not a grandfather”, which conveys an indirect message that the Governor is healthy enough and he is not much old aged for some activity.  Nirmala Devi has been able to assess the physical health condition of the Governor and such usage of words gives raise to various suspicious matters.  It is the duty of the investigation body to probe out, how Nirmala Devi was able assess and predict that, “Governor is not a grandfather”.

5)     Please find the enclosed five Photos being posted virally in social media wherein Nirmala Deva found to be stood with:

a.      Nirmala Devi with Dr.Tamilisai Sounarajan, the Tamil Nadu State President for Bharathiya Janatha Party.

b.     Nirmala Devi with Honble Thiru.Pon. Radhakrishnan, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Shipping, from the Bharathiya Janatha Party.

c.      Nirmala Devi with Mr.H.Raja, the National Secretary for the Bharathiya Janatha Party.

d.      Nirmala Devi holding the Photo of Hon’ble Narendra Modi of Bharathiya Janatha Party, the Prime Minister of India.

e.      Nirmala Devi along with the other women organisers of Kendra Organisers Meet from the Bharathiya Janatha Party, which is being conducted at Velachery, South Chennai on 8.4.2018, Sunday.

6)     As Nirmala Devi is very much close to the Politicians of Bharathiya Janatha Party and the present Governor is also hailing from the same Bharathiya Janatha Party, is again alerting and raising various suspicious things.

7)     Nirmala Devi is informing about a scheme, in which the MK University will function as a back bone for girl students, which is raising various suspicious things and it has to be clarified with evidences, where the nation wants to know about it.

8)     Nirmala Devi has announced a scheme, in which monthly salaries will be given to the girl students through her, which is raising various suspicious things and it has to be clarified with evidences, where the nation wants to know about it.

9)     Nirmala stresses more about the "next week assignment".  What was the assignment all about?  Further she says that she has been tested by the very Very Higher Official, who can do anything. The word, "test" in this context is more suspicious, whether the test is related with immoral sexual favours or anyother illegal matters?

10) Nirmala Devi discloses that she has sent a video to the girl students, which becomes an evidence of how much she is close to the Governor.  The copy of video has to be examined to dig out more hidden facts related to this issue.

11) Adv.Subramanian, the learned counsel for the accused Nirmala Devi has claimed that there is threat for the life of Nirmala Devi.  It gives raise to various suspicious things, whether the criminals connected with this issue who were behind the scene may be Higher Authorities connected with University and Politics, may try to kill Nirmala Devi to protect and escape themselves from legal consequences.

12) H. E. Governor Banwarilal Purohit, the Chancellor of the university, ordered a high-level inquiry into the matter by a retired IAS officer, R Santhanam.

13) The Vice-Chancellor of the University PP Chellathurai told reporters in New Delhi that a five-member committee, including three women, had been constituted to go into the issue.

14) “Nemo judex in causa sua”, a dictum that translates to “no one should be a judge in his/her own cause”, is widely considered a pre-requisite to a reliable, trustworthy, transparent and fair investigation.  Therefore, H. E. Governor Banwarilal Purohit, Mr.PP Chellathurai, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, The Principal and the Management of the Devanka College can not investigate or interfere into this issue as they have been alleged and accused of violations affecting the girl students forcing them for sexual favours towards the Higher Authorities of the University.  The accused respondents from 2 to 7 as competent authorities has intentionally delayed and failed to take appropriate legal action against the accused Nirmala Devi from the very moment, the issue has been brought to their notice.

15) The Governor, the Vice Chancellor, the Principal Secretary to Government for Higher Education and the Tamil Nadu State Higher Education Minister were all the Higher Authorities either directly or indirectly connected and related with the Madurai Kamaraj University.  None of the authorities has no right or authority to investigate the issue when they are alleged and accused of, and this issue has to be subjected to a high court monitored CBI Investigation to ensure fair investigation in the interest of justice.

16) In January last year, then Meghalaya Governor V Shanmuganathan was asked to resign after complaints of a similar nature were received against him. Nearly 100 Raj Bhavan staff in Shillong petitioned then President Pranab Mukherjee, the prime minister and Union home minister Rajnath Singh seeking their intervention to remove the governor and restore the dignity of Raj Bhavan.

17) On 15 Dec 2017, the Sun News Live Television Channel at Tamil Nadu broadcasted the news about the Tamil Nadu Governor, who entered the bathroom in the name of inspection, at Ambedkar Nagar, Vandipalayam, Cuddalore District, where a lady has been found to be taking bath which is available at two youtube website url https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bN_-c1l_zI0 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piTPmJVUXkM , wherein the copy of two videos of the same is enclosed herewith.  On the same day, while the Governor was returning back to Chennai from Cuddalore, one of his cars hit three persons and two persons died on spot.

18) On 18 April 2018, the accused Tamil Nadu Governor has patted the cheek of a lady Journalist Mrs.Lakshmi Subramanian of "The Week" media, without her consent, during the press interview.  The lady journalist recalled the encounter on Twitter: "I asked TN Governor Banwarilal Purohit a question as his press conference was ending. He decided to patronisingly - and without consent - pat me on the cheek as a reply." Further she tweeted as, "Washed my face several times. Still not able to get rid of it. So agitated and angered Mr Governor Banwarilal Purohit. It might be an act of appreciation by you and grandfatherly attitude. But to me you are wrong."  The photo evidencing the Governor patting the cheek of lady journalist Mrs.Lakshmi Subramanian, without her consent is also enclosed.  The issue has also been published in the NDTV News vide website url https://goo.gl/oDgL7q

a.      To the disgrace of Tamil Nadu, the Governor has sent an Apology Letter to the lady journalist Ms.Lakshmi Subramanian, stating as below: "Madam, Jouranlist, I have received your e-mail dated 18.04.2018  You have asked a question when we had got up and were proceeding to leave after the close of the Press Conference.  I considered that question to be a good one.  Therefore, as an act of appreciation for the question that you had posed, I gave a pat on your cheek considering you to be like my granddaughter.  It was done with affection and to express my appreciation for your performanceas a journalist, since I was also a member of that profession for about 40 years.  I do understand from your mail that you are feeling hurt about the incident.  I wish to express my regret and my apologies to assuage your sentiments that have been hurt, I suppose you will respond through a mail of acknowledgement".

b.     But the lady journalist has not been convinced with the Governor’s apology.  Hence, she has tweeted in her twitter page as, “Your Excellency, I have with me your letter expressing regret at what happened at the press conference in Chennai the previous day. I accept your apology, even though I am not convinced about your contention that you did it to appreciate a question I asked”.

19) If the alleged and accused person is allowed to investigate his own case, then there will not be a fair investigation and it is highly illegal, wherein it will be a threat to the victims and witnesses and evidences to prove the violations will be tampered.

 

Hence, I request the H. E. President of India and other competent authorities to take appropriate action as requested below, in the interest of justice:

A)   To quash the high-level inquiry headed by a retired IAS officer, R Santhanam as per the orders of the alleged accused Governor of Tamil Nadu.

B)    To quash the five member committee constituted by the Vice-Chancellor of the University PP Chellathurai to investigate the issue.

C)    To pass orders for a High Court monitored probe by Central Bureau of Investigation and register First Information Report on the above said facts supported with evidences through media.

D)  To recall the Governor to prevent him from not to resist fair investigation in this issue.

E)   To suspend the Vice Chancellor from service, until the investigation and trial is carried out resisting him not tamper witnesses using his influence and authority.

F)    To direct the University Grant Commission to cancel the grant of autonomy for the Devanga Arts College, to protect the students from being affected through evaluation of answer sheets, highly prone to reduce marks or even fail them.

G)  To ensure protection of life through the Police, for the students and others connected with media especially the Sathyam Television Channel, who has revealed the hidden and politically supressed facts connected with this issue.

H)  To ensure protection of life of the accused Nirmala Devi, from the criminals who were earlier instigated Nirmala Devi as a tool to enjoy sexual favours, by providing special protection at prison to avoid similar unfortunate things happened for the accused Ramkumar inside Puzhal Central Prison, in the case of Swathi Murder at Chennai.

I)      To ensure protection of life through Police for the lady journalist Ms.Lakshmi Subramanian.

J)      To pass orders, not to allow any Higher Authority of the MK University or Tamil Nadu Ministry of Higher Education or Government of Tamil Nadu to interfere into this issue at any cost and investigate the same through Officials not related to Tamil Nadu State, subjecting to investigation with video record.
