Aligarh Muslim University Vice-Chancellor P. K. Abdul Azis handed over charge to the seniormost dean among Executive Council members, Professor S. Mahdi Abbas Rizvi, here on Tuesday. With this, the tenure of Professor Azis, who is facing allegations of financial impropriety, has ended.

The AMU Students' Union had said it would oppose any attempt to give a ceremonial farewell to the V-C in the wake of the allegations against him. The Executive Council is expected to meet soon to choose a panel of five names from which the next V-C will be selected. — PTI
