Dr Bichu X Malayil-K Vidya

Kochi: Dr Bichu X Malayil, the research guide of PhD scholar K Vidya, who stands accused of forging documents to secure a position as a guest lecturer, has decided to step back from the academic association with the latter.

According to Malayil, she will not guide Vidya until the latter prove her innocence. She said that, if she continues guiding, then “it will send a wrong message” as Vidya is accused of violating mandates.

Malayil has also informed that she has officially intimated the matter to the vice-chancellor of Kalady Sree Sankaracharya Sanskrit University via the Head of the Department.

A purported report mentioning the university SC/ST cell findings about her PhD admission found that the reservation roster was subverted during the admission of Vidya. The report also highlights the intervention of the vice-chancellor's office in the matter. Malayil’s decision comes in the wake of this.

The report related to PhD came to light after a Maharaja’s College principal filed a police complaint against Vidya. According to the complaint, Vidya forged an experience certificate in the name of the college.

Vidya was a college union member and SFI leader at Maharaja’s College and Sanskrit University. It was in 2020 that she enrolled for PhD at Kalady Sree Sankaracharya Sanskrit University.
