Synopsis

The Allahabad High Court has struck down an order terminating the contract of Magsaysay awardee Sandee Pandey as a visiting faculty member by IIT-Banaras Hindu University, holding that the ex-parte action on charges like anti-national activities which have “serious aspersions” violated “the principle of natural justice”.
