HC orders release of former DU VC Deepak Pental

Hours after former Delhi University vice chancellor Deepak Pental was sent to Tihar jail in a plagiarism case, the Delhi High Court Monday ordered his "immediate release".

Pental was sent to jail by a trial court, but the high court ordered his release.

Professor Pental was arrested on a petition by Professor Pardha Saradhi, who had accused him of plagiarising his paper on biotechnology and also illegally using cobalt, a chemical substance, from the university's science lab.
