'Vixen of Stephenville'

St. Stephen's College principal Valson Thampu, who has had a controversial tenure, said on Tuesday he planned to write detective fiction after his retirement.

"I have never tried my hands at writing detective fiction. Am strongly tempted to write a potboiler under the title - The Vixen of Stephenville," Thampu said in a Facebook post.

"Shall turn to this as and when time permits. Maybe, I have to wait till I get a little time to myself, which will be, it seems, only after retirement. The plot, though, is with me, ready made and full-grown, complete in all details," added Thampu, who retires in February next year.

The principal, who has been accused of shielding a professor involved in a molestation case, has had several allegations against him - from forcing an administrative official to convert to Christianity to banning a student magazine. (PTI)
