BANGALORE: The High Court on Wednesday directed the Bangalore Rural SP to complete investigating three ‘fake’ doctors in Bailhongal village in Doddballapur taluk and submit a report within a week.
Justice S N Satyanarayana passed the order on a petition filed by one Dr B N Vadiraj alleging that the three quacks were playing with villagers’ lives.
The judge was also informed that police filed a case of sexual harassment against Vadiraj instead of acting on his complaint.
“People who are involved in irregularities are supported by police because they pay the officials. If you (police) are capable, you should punish the culprits,” Justice Satyanarayana observed.
BDS Students Allowed to Take Exams
BANGALORE: The High Court on Wednesday permitted nearly 300 first year BDS students of eight different dental colleges in the state to appear for exams scheduled to begin from Thursday.
The students filed several petitions challenging Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences’ decision to not allow them to take the exams as they were given admissions directly without writing CET or the COMED-K test.
The colleges filled hundreds of seats that remained after counselling based on the students’ PU marks. Permitting the students to write the exams, a division bench headed by Justice K L Manjunath said the petitions will be subject to final outcome of the order.
