Kovai educationist under scanner for misappropriation

The Coimbatore district crime branch police has registered a cheating case against a leading educationist in the city after he was accused of misappropriation of funds by one of the trustees of Tamil Nadu Technical Education Foundation, a charitable trust, that manages Tamil Nadu College of Engineering in Karumathampatti here.

Acting on an order issued by the Madras high court dated March 12, 2012, the crime branch police has registered a case under Section 420 of the IPC against Dr P. V. Ravi, managing trustee of Tamil Nadu Technical Education Foundation and head of the Park Group of Institutions, for alleged embezzlement of funds and a criminal breach of trust on April 22.

Police sources said the petitioner, P. Rajamani, treasurer of the trust, had accused Dr Ravi of operating several illegal bank accounts without disclosing to the trust and diverting the trust funds meant for public purpose for the personal benefit of his family members.

When contacted, Dr P. V. Ravi said the charges against him were baseless. “It is an attempt to grab the property by making false allegations against me. We will come out clean in the investigation,” he said.
