President Pranab Mukherjee has given his approval for a probe into charges of financial and other improprieties against Aligarh Muslim University's (AMU) Vice Chancellor Zameer Uddin Shah.
The nod of the President, who is likewise the Visitor to the University, comes on a proposal from the HRD Ministry to which previous Janata Dal MP Wasim Ahmed had given a notice looking for a probe into allegations against the Vice Chancellor.
President Mukherjee's action also follows approval of a similar probe against Allahabad University Vice Chancellor R L Hangloo.
Mr Ahmed, an individual from the AMU official gathering, welcomed the approval for probe against the AMU Vice Chancellor saying it was long overdue.
Zameer then again has denied all claims against him saying some personal stakes were doing a battle against him.
