The academic council of Bangalore University on Wednesday, 9th May, 2012 decided to strip R. M. Venkataramanappa of his doctorate in the wake of March 6 high court order on a plagiarism row allegedly involving him. He is a former student of sociology professor and now Bangalore University registrar B. C. Mylarappa. The allegation was that Venkatramanappa copied passages from his guide Mylarappas work for his thesis. The government had issued an order withdrawing the PhD degree following the inquiry report submitted by K. V. Irniraya commission stating that the thesis contained plagiarized passages.
But the high court observed that the order issued by the government under section 10 be read as asking the vice-chancellor to initiate further proceedings and asked the university to initiate and conclude proceedings against Venkatramanappa. Mylarappa could not attend the council on Wednesday, 9th May, 2012. However, he told the media: I feel bad for the student. All this has been done to show me in a bad light. He became a scapegoat. He is not involved in any plagiarism. He has copied from my book after getting my permission. How will it be plagiarism then Moreover, I was only his second guide.
