... a senior professor at IIT-KGP appears to have chosen some shady ways to augment his income:
[Amit Kumar Ghos], a senior professor at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, is under police investigation for allegedly using the IIT campus and brand to run an institute whose courses and diplomas have no legitimacy whatsoever.

[It has been] alleged that Ghosh ran an institute called the Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) out of the Kharagpur campus, calling himself its President.
He even conducted their admission tests in his IIT office. Each student was allegedly charged a fee of Rs 27,000 for the course.
And here's the clincher:
Ghosh ... was ironically also the chief vigilance officer (CVO) of the IIT till recently.
