Tamil Nadu Teacher ‘asks students to perform sexual favours for official’ held

The "offers" the students were promised for sexual favours to top level management faculty at Madurai Kamaraj University (to which the college was affiliated) included 85% marks, plenty of cash, etc. While she did not mention what the girls were required to do Nirmala Devi said, "Being college girls you would have grasped what those "certain things" are".

In the audio clip, the academic doesn't explicitly mention sexual favours, but she does say the officials want "help" from college students, and promises that their "separate" accounts will be credited with funds.

Though the lecturer of Devanga Arts College was alleged to have made the overtures a month ago, the issue came to light after an audio of purported conversation between her and some students went viral in the social media on Sunday. Without using any direct reference to sexual favour, she indirectly implies that as a teacher, she had supported them till now academically. In the audio clipping, Nirmala Devi could be heard advising her pupils, over phone, about the opportunity awaiting them. I've been having a wonderful conversation about it for years with students at Boston College, but the movie also does a lovely job of showing the great human struggle that single people face day to day. "The higher official I am referring to is not the governor, the old man, but someone of that stature", she said. Earlier, the university has separately ordered a probe by a five-member committee into the incident while the college also formed a disciplinary committee to inquire.

Demanding the immediate arrest of the lady professor, a through probe should be ordered to identify for which higher authorities she has indulged in such indecent act and bring them to book.

Senior AIADMK leader and Minister D Jayakumar assured severe punishment under the law for the professor for luring the students into flesh trade. "Such people should be killed by an encounter", he told reporters here.

The DMK working president MK Stalin demanded a probe by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) under the supervision of the Madras High Court to expose the network involved in the scandal.
