Bhakthavatsala panel summons former VC, registrar

Vice Chancellor of the University of Mysore (UoM) K S Rangappa and UoM Biochemistry professor B S Vishwanath appeared before the Justice Bhakthavatsala Commission, here, on Monday.

The commission has been formed to probe the alleged irregularities in the Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) between the years 2010-14. Rangappa and Vishwanath served as vice-chancellor and registrar of KSOU, respectively, during the period.

Justice Bhakthavatsala had issued the summons on June 19 to the duo, “to appear in person before the commission,” at the Board of Management Hall of KSOU. Summons have also been issued to incumbent VC M G Krishnan and Registrar P S Naik, who have to appear on June 23 before the commission.

Justice Bhakthavatsala, who is expected to be in the city for the next few days, has also summoned other professors and personnel who are part of the irregularities.

Among the irregularities being probed are the construction of buildings for regional centres, entering into Memoranda of Understanding with private institutes across the country, violation of roster in appointment of teaching and non-teaching staff and others.

The Governor had directed the varsity to suspend six persons for their role in the marks card scam in May, based on the interim report submitted by the commission.
