Meanwhile, chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal ordered an enquiry against the former vice-chancellor on complaint of the management of the KKHSOU. The university management alleged that the former vice-chancellor embezzled the university fund to the tune of rupees 12 crore during his tenure from 2008 to 2015. Interestingly, the chancellor as well as the governor of the state ordered separate enquiry against the present vice-chancellor of the university on a complaint lodged by the former vice-chancellor Barooah.
