Shillong, March 13: Meghalaya police will interrogate chancellor of the Apex Professional University, Arunachal Pradesh, for his alleged role in the affairs of the Chandra Mohan Jha University.
Dhanwant Singh Matharoo, chancellor of the university in Pasighat, was today remanded in seven days’ police custody by the court of a chief judicial magistrate.
Sources said Matharoo, who founded the Apex Education Group in Amritsar, had allegedly been running 531 centres which facilitated the admission of students to CMJ University.
“These centres were spread across the country and through these centres admissions to CMJ University were taken. Thousands of students had enrolled through these centres where fees were also collected,” sources said.
The Apex Professional University was established by an act passed by Arunachal Pradesh Assembly.
The Supreme Court recently cancelled anticipatory bail of CMJ University chancellor Chandra Mohan Jha which could lead to his arrest.
