#thisisNIPER--- Institute of National Shame-1

Despite all charges one corrupt person after another heading NIPER

CBI registered a case against Dr. Saranjit Singh  (FIR by CBI No. RCCHG2016A0005 dated 14-1-2016) by name and matter is under investigation. Hence, he cannot even continue on existing post of Professor and Head, Pharmaceutical Analysis, let alone take charge as Officiating Director of NIPER, Mohali.

Ministry by allowing him to take charge made a mockery of all Acts, constitutional provisions and also the revered chair of Director of an institute of learning. 

How can the Head of an Institute talk of ethics and values to students and faculty, when his own conduct is under a cloud and he is under investigation pertaining to criminal charges?

Critical facts regarding Saranjit Singh:
1. FIR is already registered by CBI against him, by name.
2. Charges are extremely serious criminal charges pertaining to criminal conspiracy, cheating, forgery and using forged documents as genuine and also sections under the prevention of corruption act.
3. As per the CVC manual, he MUST be placed under immediate suspension. So let alone take charge as officiating director, he CANNOT even continue as professor in NIPER.

4. Relevant rule position in the Central Vigilance Commission Manual is reproduced below:

2. When a Government servant may be suspended.

2.1. A Government servant may be placed under suspension when a disciplinary proceeding against him is contemplated or is pending or where, in the opinion of the competent authority, he has engaged himself in activities prejudicial to the interest of the security of the State or when a case against him in respect of any criminal offence is under investigation, enquiry or trial.
