A series of writ petitions had been filed by the petitioner against the Department of Higher Education, Karnataka; Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU); the Vice-Chancellor of the Karnataka State Law University (KSLU), and others. The petitioner, who was enrolled in an engineering college, was declined permission by VTU to appear for his 7th and 8th semester classes as he had a series of backlogs from his earlier semesters. He had also filed writ petitions seeking directions to the KSLU to admit him to the law course.
Justice R Devdas had dismissed this batch of writ petitions, observing that they had no merit and the petitioner was abusing the process of the Court. The Single Judge also directed the petitioner to deposit ₹1 lakh, failing which future petitions filed by him before the High Court would not be listed.
