More agony of intellectual elites of this country
Prof. K.L. Chopra Ex-Director, IIT, Kharagpur, President Society for Scientific Values in his email to Dr. Raghunath Anant Mashelkar, ex-DG CSIR & Ex- Chairman BOG, NIPER wrote,
Dear Dr. Mashelkar
I have just seen the news that you have resigned as Chairman, NIPER. What happened to the Banerjee inquiry Report? If a plagiarist gets away due to maladministration or a biased committee of experts, SSV will not keep quiet and will hold all involved responsible for the miscarriage of justice. Please help us to see that the guilty gets exposed.

My Dear Chopra Ji,
There were some ethical issues that were bothering me.
Incidentally, no one had raised a question, but I did this on my own.
The bitter experience of the early part of the year has converted this ‘innocent boy’ called Mashelkar into a ‘wise man’
I am not happy with the committee absolving Banerjee despite the blatant violation. I have sent the extra evidence also to them after the submission of the report.
It is up to Director (NIPER) and the new Chairman, Dr. Ramasami, to handel the matter.
His successor, Chairman BOG, NIPER Dr. T. Ramasami, Secretary Covt. of India, Ministry of science and Technology wrote,
Dear Prof. Rama Rao,
I enclosed a copy of the mails received from Dr. R. A. Masalkar. The matter is self-explanatory. Kindly advice. Let us strategise. Our action and plans such that the NIPER stayed out of controversy
Dr. T. Ramasami
