Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit has ordered a high-level inquiry into the case of a woman professor from a college in Aruppukottai in Virudhunagar district of Tamil Nadu, luring girl students over phone to compromise on their morals to earn money. "She could be arrested after the enquiry", Superintendent of Police (Virudhunagar) M. Rajarajan said.

The lecturer has already been suspended by the college management last month pending investigation after some students complained about her. In the 20 minutes, audio clip the professor is heard allegedly trying to convince the young girls to do a sexual favour for financial and academic rewards.

Nirmala Devi locked herself up when she found a posse of police personnel posted outside her house at Chokkalinga Nagar at noon.

According to TOI, Around 7 pm, police forced themselves in and took her away.

She has been booked under IPC sections 370 (Buying or disposing of any person as a slave) and 511 (Punishment for attempting to commit offences punishable with life or other imprisonment) and under the Information Technology Act, police said. The case was based on a complaint from college secretary R Ramasamy. 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". She will be remanded in judicial custody after interrogation.

Hours after a complaint was lodged by the college and a women's association, police questioned the lecturer at her home and detained her. Her husband Saravana Pandi was a civil contractor and she had two daughters, the elder one studying MBBS in Chennai. He said the university had a tamper-proof system in place and no paper could be traced to alter the marks.

In the audio clip, Devi is purportedly heard telling the students of an "opportunity" to do certain things secretly for a "very senior official" of Madurai Kamaraj University, to which the college is affiliated.

Opposition parties reacted strongly to the developments. Jayakumar further said that the State government viewed the incident seriously and would not hesitate to initiate stringent action.Reacting to the issue that shocked the State, DMK working president M K Stalin demanded a CBI probe.

PMK Youth Wing leader and Lok Sabha MP Anbumani Ramadoss also sought a CBI probe into the matter.

She is heard promising to the students that some money will be transferred to their accounts and everything will be highly confidential.
