Bail plea rejected, AMU professor sent to jail

Suspended chairman of law department at Aligarh Muslim University was sent to jail after his bail plea was rejected. Professor M Shabbir’s bail plea was rejected by ACJ magistrate Vinay Kumar on Monday. The matter is now scheduled to be taken up in the court of the additional district judge on Monday.

Prof Shabbir was suspended in the first week of December following a charge of sexual harassment by a girl student. He eluded arrest for four weeks before suddenly presenting himself before the court and securing interim bail earlier this month.

It may be mentioned that Prof Shabbir against whom an arrest warrant had been issued in mid December was granted interim bail on Jan 7 in the court of additional district judge after he had surrendered.
