Prof Swagata Sen has taken charge as the acting vice-chancellor of the University of Gour Banga in Malda district. Sen said he took charge on Friday as the acting V-C. "I will be discharging responsibility for another six months," he said. Sen had been appointed as V-C by higher education department for a period of six months, a department official said. Sen, who was earlier the Pro-VC (Academic) of Calcutta University, was appointed after Gopal Chandra Mishra resigned from the post of vice-chancellor. Mishra had resigned following agitation by members of the youth wing of a political party at the university campus on November 13 midnight.
