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

Though the lecturer of Devanga Arts College was alleged to have made the overtures a month ago, the issue came to light after an audio of purported conversation between her and some students went viral in the social media on Sunday. As the incident sent shock waves, Nirmala was placed under suspension and a five-member committee has been formed by the University to probe the incident.

She informs them how the officials providing these opportunities are someone of the Governor's stature and this would mean a lot of money for them if they take it up.

According to The Hindu, while the professor could not be contacted, she revealed to a news channel that her the whole conversation had been twisted by her students and extracting sexual favours from them was not her intention.

Party working president M K Stalin said only the Vice-Chancellor of a university acts as the head and could address issues of staff and students of colleges affiliated to it and not the Governor, who is also its Chancellor.

"I can assure you can scale great heights".

"For doing something successfully, they (the officials) are expecting college students for certain things".

Though the girls, at different points, could be heard saying they were not interested, she keeps telling them not to decide hastily and instead think independently and clearly and tell her. In the audio clipping, Nirmala Devi could be heard advising her pupils, over phone, about the opportunity awaiting them. During the recorded talk, Nirmala reportedly told the girls that she too had done "so" in her younger days and no harm befell her. The statement also further suspects that there is a criminal nexus between the governor, governor's office and officials belonging to the higher education department. "So we cannot offer any favour for the students as claimed in the audio", he said, alleging that there could have been a conspiracy over the circulation of the audio clip. "Undettered, the professor tells the students can achieve anything".
