Aam Aadmi Party students wing on Thursday held protest outside the Maharashtra Raj Bhavan to protest the suspension of Mumbai University professor Neeraj Hatekar. The AAP protestors were detained up by police and prohibitory orders under Section 144 have been imposed in the area.
Professor Hatekar was suspended by Mumbai University Vice Chancellor Rajan Welukar on Saturday after he publicly spoke out against what he said were irregularities in the university.
He had accused the Vice Chancellor of mismanagement. Many people including eminent historian Ramachandra Guha too have tweeted in Professor Hatekar’s support.
