VILLUPURAM: Giving a whole new dimension to the controversy surrounding the private SVS Medical College of Yoga and Naturopathy, which was sealed after the death of three girl students, it has now emerged that the correspondent Vasuki Subramanian herself had joined the bachelor’s degree course at the same college along with the first batch of students, but discontinued her studies due to examination fear.
Mishaa Vel, one of the three students from the first batch who completed the degree course, said that a total of 10 students had registered for the course in the first batch, and it included the correspondent.
“Vasuki Subramanian discontinued her studies as she feared that she would not able to clear the exams. She was not able to cheat as the exam hall was under camera surveillance,” Mishaa alleged, adding that she was heading the college with only a diploma in medical lab technology to her credit. Mishaa said that only three managed to complete the course, and only two among those received their certificates. “The other student, a girl, didn’t receive her certificate as the management asked her to pay extra fee. I managed to get the certificate only with the help of my brother, a lawyer in the Madras HC,” he said.
“She also used to collect Rs 10,000 per student to make them pass the exams. Many had given her the cash, believing her words, though they failed,” Mishaa claimed. He also said that the correspondent made the students themselves create fake documents for her.
