The state government has asked the West Bengal University of Technology to co-operate with the CID team probing alleged financial irregularities by the authorities of the educational institution.
On May 2, the team had visited the campus but could proceed with the investigation as university officials did not allow them to see records since they had not received any official directive.
On Thursday, an official of the higher education department wrote to the university registrar, Syed Rafikul Islam, directing him to cooperate with the CID.
The alleged irregularities are related to a Rs 117-crore contract for constructing the university’s second campus at Haringhata.
The university has filed a writ petition in Calcutta High Court this week challenging the probe, said vice-chancellor Sabyasachi Sengupta.
nFraud arrest: Arup Baidya, 34, an employee of a courier company, was arrested on Thursday for allegedly encashing demand drafts, worth Rs 36.71 lakh, using a fake account.
