KUD files bribery plaint against prof

Karnatak University, Dharwad, has filed a complaint with the Lokayukta
police against the dean of its Education department over charges of seeking bribes
to award PhDs to two students.

Ejaz Ahmed Naiku from Jammu and Kashmir and Shabia A M Khan from Hubballi had enrolled themselves for PhD theses under the guidance of Prof Noorjehan Ganihar. The professor is said to have sought a bribe of Rs four lakh each from the two students.

The Karnatak University, Dharwad, in its complaint, stated that not only did the professor delay her reply to the show-cause notice, but also that it was not improper.
