High Court restrains functioning of college correspondent

The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court on Thursday granted an interim injunction against the appointment of N. Jamal Mohaideen as correspondent and secretary (in-charge) of M.S.S. Waqf Board College here.

Justice M.S. Ramesh restrained him from carrying out his duties. The petitioner, B. Sardar Basha, a member of the general body of the college, alleged that Mr. Jamal Mohaideen had earlier served as correspondent and secretary. During his tenure, the petitioner said, he had misappropriated funds and was involved in illegal gratification. Following the allegations, the governing board took a decision to remove him from the post in 2003.

The High Court Bench had also dismissed his plea challenging the decision. However, on the recommendation of the Tamil Nadu Waqf Board, he was nominated as correspondent and secretary (in-charge) until reconstitution of the college board. A Government Order was also issued to this effect by the Most Backward Classes and Minority Welfare department in 2017.

The petitioner challenged his nomination, which was effected despite the fact that he was removed from it. He sought an injunction against the G.O. nominating him to the post and his continuing as correspondent and secretary (in-charge).
