Tamil Nadu: College teacher arrested for 'luring' students into prostitution


The assistant professor of the autonomous college was finally arrested from her house after she locked herself when the police reached there.

After an audio clip of her luring her students into prostitution went viral, Nirmala Devi, Assistant Professor at Mathematics department of the Madurai's Devanga Arts College was arrested on Monday in Virudhunagar, even as Governor Banwarilal Purohit and Madurai Kamaraj University ordered separate probes.

The students promptly complained to the college administration which forwarded their complaint to the local police when was at Nirmala Devi's Aruppukkottai residence as early as at 07:00 in the morning yesterday. Meanwhile, enraged students and parents thronged the college and staged a demonstration demanding action against the Professor.

As the issue led to an outrage with the lecturer's remarks being perceived as suggestion of sexual favour, the Tamil Nadu government and opposition parties lashed out at her. I've been having a wonderful conversation about it for years with students at Boston College, but the movie also does a lovely job of showing the great human struggle that single people face day to day.

She said such opportunities would will bring in a lot of money and bank accounts would be opened in their name, with the money being directly transferred to the accounts.

S Subbaraju, general secretary of (MUTA) Madurai Kamaraj, Manonmaniam Sundaranar, Mother Teresa and Alagappa University Teachers' Association endorsed the demand of DMK leader since the CBI can not be relied and high court's supervision is necessary. They are expecting college students for successfully completing an important assignment. "I think we need to work together to support them in proving that there are ways to date differently". Philosophy professor Kerry Cronin told her students to ask someone out on a date, where it didn't involve alcohol or physical contact. Earlier, the university has separately ordered a probe by a five-member committee into the incident while the college also formed a disciplinary committee to inquire. Pattali Makkal Katchi's (PMK) Anbumani Ramadoss demanded a CBI probe to help unearth the top officials behind the matter.
