She was then taken to the Aruppukkottai town police station.

In the 19-minute audio clip, Devi who calls her students affectionately as "Kanna" (Dear) attempts to entrap them to offer sexual favours in return for money and academic progress. While she did not mention what the girls were required to do Nirmala Devi said, "Being college girls you would have grasped what those "certain things" are".

Matters would have rested there but for a leak of the telephonic conversation, which was recorded by the girls, on social media on Sunday. Ramasamy, principal in-charge of the college, said they have launched an inquiry.

"Dating takes social courage and we need to teach our young people the virtue of social courage", Cronin said in a statement.

An audio clip of an mathematics professor from Tamil Nadu persuading her students to undertake an "assignment" for the university's high-ranking officials has gone viral.


Nirmala chose four students, who hail from the economically deprived sections, and urged them to have "sex" with senior management staff members at the "Varsity for which they would not only get 85% mark in their subjects but also huge money in cash".

When the girls tell her not to talk about this again, Nirmala Devi seeks an assurance from them that they will not reveal the conversation to anyone. When the student refuses, Devi warns her against sharing the conversation with anyone.

It is said that the police had to storm their way in as the accused Nirmala Devi locked herself up after police came about to arrest her. Philosophy professor Kerry Cronin told her students to ask someone out on a date, where it didn't involve alcohol or physical contact.

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.

CPM state secretary K Balakrishnan demanded that the Centre recall Purohit for a fair probe.

A Raj Bhavan statement said, "There have been widespread reports about certain immoral happenings at a college in Aruppukottai, in which references to Madurai Kamaraj University have also been made".
