Vijay Kumar Shukla alias Munna Shukla, a Politician serving jail terms in Bihar over Murder Charges is set to be awarded with Ph. D for researching on expression of political awareness in Hindi novels.
Shukla’s research guide, Prof Devnandan Kumar Prasad of Rameshwar College, Muzaffarpur told IANS over telephone that Shukla had submitted his thesis and appeared for the final interview.
B.R. Ambedkar Bihar University examination controller, Arun Kumar Singh said that Shukla would be awarded a doctorate degree soon.
Shukla, in his late 40s, appeared before a team of experts for his final interview Friday after submitting his thesis.
Brought from the Muzaffarpur jail under heavy security, the former legislator of ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) was upbeat and thanked all for the help in completing his research work, another official of the university said.
A local court two years ago had sentenced Shukla to life imprisonment in the sensational murder case of former Bihar minister Brij Bihari Prasad, June 13, 1998.
Earlier, Shukla was also sentenced to life imprisonment in 2007 in the case of the murder of an Indian Administrative Service officer G. Krishnaiya in 1994. He was later acquitted by the Patna High Court.
Krishnaiya, a 1985 batch officer of Bihar cadre, was shot at and then stoned by a mob near Muzaffarpur town on Dec 5, 1994.
Shukla also faces several criminal cases, including those related to murder, attempt to murder, extortion and abduction in various courts. His wife, Annu Shukla is a JD-U legislator from Lalganj in Vaishali district.
Shukla is not alone, two other ‘bahubalis’ or criminal-turned-politicians have been awarded a doctorate degree earlier.
Three years ago, then jailed JD-U legislator Sunil Pandey, sentenced to life imprisonment for kidnapping a doctor, was awarded a PhD. for his research on Lord Mahavir’s philosophy of “Ahimsa (non-violence)”.
The Veer Kunwar Singh University (VKSU) at Arrah in Bhojpur district, about 60 km from here, awarded a doctorate degree to Pandey at its convocation for his thesis “Mahavir Ke Updesh Adhunik Paripeksha Mein (Mahavir’s Teachings in the Modern Context)”.
Pandey, in his mid 40s, is a legislator of JD-U from Terari in Bhojpur district, and is currently out of jail on bail.
He has nearly two dozen criminal cases against him that include murder, kidnapping, extortion and loot. In September last year, he was sentenced to life imprisonment for kidnapping neurosurgeon Ramesh Chandra in 2003.
Former Rashtriya Janata Dal MP Mohammad Shahabuddin, currently lodged in Siwan jail, was also awarded a doctorate degree on his thesis ‘First Coalition Government’ from B.R. Ambedkar Bihar University.

India lost 2-5 to China and finished with a silver medal at the sixth Junior Women’s Asia Cup hockey championship here Saturday.
This was India’s best showing in the tournament after four bronze medals.

Deep Grace Ekka scored in the seventh minute courtesy a penalty stroke while skipper and midfielder Ritu Rani scored a field goal four minutes later. India had the better of the exchanges for another quarter-hour before a spell of rain forced play to be suspended.
Five minutes after play resumed, Na Wang scored a field goal to reduce the margin and turn the tide. She scored off a penalty corner two minutes into the second half to restore parity. Weija Hao struck two goals in three minutes to give China a 4-2 lead.
Jiaqi Li completed the rout in the 48th minute. India beat Japan 2-1 in the semifinal.
The Indian team has qualified for the Junior Women’s World Cup to be held next year.

The Politics over Sri Lankan Air Forcer Cadets in India has gone wild with Jayalalitha demanding them to be sent back while Defense Ministry first agreeing to the proposal and later shifting the Pilots to Bangalore Air Base.
The events were set in motion Friday afternoon with the Chennai wing of the Press Information Bureau issuing a cryptic note saying that the airmen were being “sent off” from the Tambaram air base. The external affairs and defence ministries in New Delhi denied any such action – but not officially.
“All Sri Lankan trainees are being sent off today (Friday) from this (Tambaram air force) station as per instruction of Ministry of Defence,” said a one-line statement issued by the Press Information Bureau’s Chennai wing around 2 p.m.
This was construed as the central government bowing to the political pressure exerted by the AIADMK and opposition DMK against the training being provided to the Sri Lankan airmen.
But in the evening, the ministries of external affairs and defence in New Delhi stated that no action had been initiated against the trainees, adding that they would not precipitate a diplomatic row by sending the airmen back.
For good measure, the Indian Air Force (IAF) too pointed out that training Sri Lankan airmen was nothing new and that three-to six-month courses had previously been conducted at air bases in Tamil Nadu.
An IAF officer also noted that the Sri Lankan trainees were only being shifted to another air base in Bangalore – reportedly to Yelahanka – for the next phase of training, after having completed the Tambaram phase.
However, neither the two ministries nor the IAF were willing to come on record to state their positions on the issue.
Jayalalithaa, in a statement, demanded the trainees be sent home immediately and not to Yelakahka.
Reports of Sri Lankan air force personnel being trained at the Tambaram air base on the outskirts of Chennai have raised the hackles of all Dravidian political parties and their leaders in Tamil Nadu.
These include Jayalalithaa, DMK chief M. Karunanidhi and MDMK leader Vaiko.
The DMK is a partner in the ruling United Progressive Alliance (UPA) at the centre.
These leaders have demanded the immediate expulsion of Sri Lankan Air Force personnel being trained in Tamil Nadu.
Jayalalithaa had said this training was being given at a time when the Tamil Nadu assembly passed a resolution that India and other countries should impose economic sanctions against Sri Lanka for committing war crimes.
“When the international community is raising its voice that India should urge Sri Lanka to accord equal rights to Tamils, the news of Sri Lanka Air Force personnel (coming) for nine months training at the Tambaram air force station (near here) is like piercing (our) heart with a spear,” she had said.
She said the training and that too in Tamil Nadu “is not only inappropriate but also anti-Tamil”.
Former chief minister Karunanidhi also condemned the training and demanded the trainees be sent back.
Tamil parties have accused the Sri Lankan military of committing atrocities on Tamil civilians during the final stages of the war against the separatist Tamil Tigers that ended in May 2009.
