Annulling the appointments, Justice Chakradhari Sharan Singh found merit in the complaint that the selection committee was chosen arbitrarily and it gave marks to the candidates in a faulty manner.

The 13 principals, whose appointment has been cancelled, were selected by a committee in 2009, which was challenged through a writ petition in the HC.

Veer Kunwar Singh University, Ara, is a public university established by Bihar University Act 1976.
