The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad has written to the Lieutenant Governor urging him to refer the CENTAC fraud case to CBI or to a high-level committee chaired by a retired High Court Judge or to take legal action under the Public Service Enquiry Act.

So far, the Department has unearthed 29 cases of discrepancy that amounts to Rs. 19.7 lakh.

However the letter states, if the investigation is spearheaded, connivance of more scams and persons from banks and educational department will be found.

The letter asks the LG to initiate action under Section 2 of the Public Servants (Inquiries) Act, which states that when the government shall be of the opinion that there are good grounds for making a formal and public inquiry into the truth of any imputation of misbehaviour by any person in the service of government, non-removable from his appointment without the sanction of the government, the government may order a formal and public inquiry made into the truth thereof.
