Posted on Nov 21, 10:28PM | UNI

The Karnataka High Court today quashed the appointment of Mr B C Mylarappa as the Bangalore University Registrar and asked him to quit the office immediately as he was found indulging in plagiarism.

When a PIL challenging his appointment came up for hearing the Division Bench headed by Justice N Kumar in the order stated that Mylarappa ceases to be the Registrar from today itself on the grounds that he had indulged in plagiarism and also that criminal proceedings were initiated against him by Bangalore University.

The PIL, filed by an environment engineer Parameshwara Murthy and three others, had alleged Mylarappa was 'not duly qualified to become a lecturer in the University and he was an usurper of a public office.

'He is guilty of several acts of commission and omission, including indulging in the act of plagiarism'.

The bench also rejected an appeal by Malarappa's advocate for a two month stay.
