Doctor seeks 'sexual favours' from woman 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - State
A doctor at the Vijayanagar Institute of Medical Sciences (VIMS) here is accused of seeking sexual favours from a woman who wanted him to treat her son for ear pain.

Dr Kattappa allegedly made the demand when the woman brought her son the second time on Friday.

He reportedly told her that quality treatment was not possible until she gave him "sexual favours". He is also accused of misbehaving with her. The woman lodged a complaint against the doctor at the women's police station on Saturday.

Ramizabi, the sub-inspector of women's police station, said that since the doctor was a government employee, he would be served a notice first.

Further action will be taken after taking the consent of the higher authorities, she added.

Despite curbs, American universities welcoming Indians: Duke University official 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - State
Uncertainty over possible restrictions on foreign students entering the USA, by the new government, has led to a decline in the number applicants to universities there.

"There has been a lot of talk and threats of restricting entry of foreign students. This is unfortunate because foreign students are important for cultural vitality and economic activity," he said. Schoenfeld was in the city to host an event to connect with alumni of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, new students and their parents. Schoenfeld said that public and private universities throughout the United States, and their associations, are lobbying through members of the Congress, trying to establish that it is in the national interest to "keep doors open.''
