Mylarappa gets the sack

B C Mylarappa was relieved from service as Registrar of Bangalore University on Saturday.

The State government issued an order relieving him from service after the Karnataka High Court quashed his appointment as the Registrar of Bangalore University, on Wednesday.

A government-appointed committee headed by retired IAS officer K V Irniraya had indicted Mylarappa of plagiarism.

The indictment was based on a report by Institute for Social and Economic Change, which confirmed the allegations of plagiarism against him.

Mylarappa is said to have assisted his PhD student, M Venkataramanappa, allowing him to copy more than 100 pages from his PhD thesis. The registrar’s own PhD thesis has also been slammed for plagiarism.

Based on the recommendations of the Irniraya Committee, the University Syndicate had earlier this year decided to withdraw the PhD of Venkataramanappa.

Two days ago, the High Court Division Bench comprising Justice N Kumar and Justice Suri Appa Rao had directed the State government to relieve Mylarappa immediately from service on the charges of plagiarism.

Even on Thursday, Mylarappa did not attend the Syndicate meeting of the university. It was chaired by the acting Vice Chancellor.
