BANGALORE: The High Court has asked the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) to admit students who were unable to submit their forms in time due to an error on the varsity website, after collecting a penalty. It also said the penalty must be borne by the colleges of the students.

Several students from Bidar had approached the Gulbarga bench of the High Court as they were denied admission by the university for BSc nursing course for the academic year 2013-14.

The students have alleged that they had submitted their forms, but the colleges could not submit the forms as they were unable to access the university’s website.

The court, after hearing both the students and the university, directed the RGUHS to approve the admissions of the students.

The university said it would allow students to take up examinations if each student pays a penalty of `2,000 and meet other academic eligibility criteria.

Reddy Aide’s Bail Plea Rejected 

The High Court has rejected the bail application of Karapudi Mahesh, a close aide of Janardhana Reddy, last week.

As per the prosecution, Mahesh had been facilitating the transport of iron ore illegally extracted from different stockyards/mines in Bellary district and seized at Belekeri Port, at the behest of Janardhana Reddy.  The CBI contended that Mahesh is a very influential person and if released on bail, there is every likelihood of him tampering evidence, threatening witnesses,  destroying evidence and information given by them to the investigating officer.
