Dattagupta said, “Yes, I have sent my resignation to the President but I have got no word on whether it has been accepted. I was not given a chance to defend myself.”

The 68-year-old physicist’s resignation comes in the wake of revelations that the Ministry of Human Resource Development has sent a report to President Mukherjee recommending his removal.

The recommendation was based on the findings of MHRD’s three-member committee to investigate the allegations against Dattagupta.

Allegations against Dattagupta include drawing salary from Visva Bharati and pension from Jawaharlal Nehru University simultaneously in alleged violation of the law and making irregular appointments.
