Expelled AIADMK leader Sasikala and her niece J Ilavarasi have both been officially registered for Bangalore University’s distance education course. Bangalore University has advanced their admission schedule from Saturday to Thursday to complete the formalities before Ilavarasi was to go on parole at Parappana Agrahara Central Prison.
As per a report by The New Indian Express, post completing the admission, Bangalore University’s Director of Distance Education, Professor B C Mylarappa, said, “We received information from jail authorities that Ilavarasi was expected to go on parole. So, we visited the prison Thursday morning and completed the admission process for a certificate course in Kannada.”
The woman behind Ilavarasi’s enrollment is Sasikala. “Ilavarasi expressed her interest to join the course and we have completed the admission process for both of them,” said Mylarappa.
Even though there are another 257 candidates who are also jail inmates, the university is yet to complete the admission process for distant education, which is to be done on Saturday.
Mylarappa further added, “Both were happy that they are enrolling in the course and we informed them that we will provide them with the study material and the teacher would come to the jail and teach them during contact classes”.
