Tamil Nadu: 'Trainer' of disaster drill that killed girl faked credentials

COIMBATORE: A day after the twist of fate that claimed the lifetime of a 19-year-old girl throughout a crisis management drill at a non-public school in Coimbatore on Thursday, the Coimbatore rural police arrested G Arumugam, 31, of Vandalur in Chennai, who claimed to be a trainer from the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).

N Logeswari, a second-year BBA scholar of the Kovai Kalaimagal College of Arts and Science at Vellimalaipattinam close to Narasipuram, died after hitting a sunshade at the first floor of the building when she used to be forced by the instructor to jump from the second one floor.

Additional superintendent of police G S Anitha has been questioning Arumugam on the Alandurai police station.

It has come to mild that the half-a-dozen levels, together with a PhD, that Arumugam claimed to have possessed were non-existent and that he used to be not approved by the NDMA to behavior such training programmes.


With faux levels and fictitious certificate, Arumugam has been conning colleges since 2011 by sending letters soliciting permission to train students.


The dubious PhD, Arumugam claimed, used to be given by Tokyo University. He claimed to have carried out 1,275 crisis consciousness programmes around the state in colleges. A native of Manavalakurichi in Kanyakumari, Arumugam, surprisingly didn't fee any charge from the universities for the educational he introduced. The NDMA has clarified that he used to be neither its member nor used to be he trained by the authority.


"He would say college managements need not pay him. Instead the students can pay 50 each if they need a certificate on completion of disaster management exercise," ASP Anitha stated. The school government declared a holiday on Friday and used to be evasive.
