"Based on its report, the Assistant Professor, who was away in MKU for a refresher course, was recalled through a special messenger and immediately placed under suspension", Devanga Arts College correspondent R. Ramasamy toldThe Hindu. She visits Madurai regularly to correct the answer-sheets of students appearing for exams.

The professor was arrested on Monday, after the police barged into her locked house at Aruppukottai in Virudhunagar district. The incident came to light after an audio clip of the lady professor went viral on social media networking sites. The police took her into custody after waiting for over four hours outside her residence.

The Madurai Kamaraj University has withdrawn its five-member probe committee after Governor Banwarilal Purohit, who is also the Chancellor of the University, announced an investigation by a former bureaucrat yesterday.

Earlier, as the issue led to an outrage with the lecturer's remarks being perceived as suggestion of sexual favour, the state government and opposition parties lashed out at her. Police have booked her under sections 370 and 511 of the Indian Penal Code and under the provisions of the Information Technology Act for the conversation she had using the mobile phone. The college is affiliated to the Madurai Kamaraj University. "If we receive a complaint on the incident, I will direct the university Registrar to file a police complaint". When the girls tell her not to talk about this again, Ms. Nirmala Devi seeks an assurance from them that they will not reveal about the conversation to anyone.

She, however, has denied sexual angle to her advice and claimed she had made it "in the right spirit" and not with any hidden motive or agenda. "We are still clueless about the details of charges", he said. While Nirmala Devi could not be contacted, she told a television channel that her intention was not bad and the girls misunderstood what she said.

Senior AIADMK leader and Minister D Jayakumar assured severe punishment under the law for the professor for luring the students into flesh trade.

DMK chief MK Stalin sought a CBI probe into the matter.
