KLANG: A Maths whizz, who is a foreign senior lecturer, at the Multimedia University in Cyberjaya claimed trial at the Sessions court here for taking a RM800 bribe from a student in return for better grades.


.
Known for his speed in solving Mathematical questions, Dr Krishna Prasad Ramulapati, 52, an Indian national was charged with taking the bribe from a 24-year-old student at Block B, Information Technology Faculty Universiti Multimedia, Persiaraan Multimedia in Cyberjaya as an inducement to give a better grade for Algorithmic oriented language analysis on June 22.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) arrested him on June 24, after the student lodged a report with the commission.

In earlier media reports it was said that the student had sat for a qualifying exam to enable her to continue her Masterís degree.

After sitting for her papers, she was allegedly approached by her lecturer who told her she did not do well in her exam and that he could help her with the grades provided she agreed to his demands.

DPP Ahmad Sazilee Abdul Khairi asked the court to set bail at RM10,000 while the defence counsel Arunan Selvaraj requested bail be set at RM5,000.

Sessions Court judge Yong Zarida Sazali set bail of RM8,000 with two sureties and set August 3 to mention the case.

Two fellow women lecturers in their 50s posted the bail and stood as sureties for Dr Prasad who has been with the varsity for two-years.

His contract is supposed to be renewed this July.

Dr Prasad, who was clad in khaki coloured pants and a simple shirt, used an old white towel to shield his face from cameramen until he was whisked away alone in a rented Mercedez Benz 190 from the court entrance.

His wife, a Sri Lankan national in her mid-30s who is also a science lecturer, waited inside the court grounds until reporters and cameramen left.

Under the Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009, if Dr Prasad is found guilty, he could face a 20-year jail term or five times the bribe amount or RM10,000 or which is higher.
