Cong ex-law min Moily (or a ghostwriting minion) plagiarised Hindu op-ed (allegedly)

Ex-UPA law minister Veerappa Moily allegedly plagiarised portions of an article published under his name in The Hindu on 11 June 2015, which emerged had been in-part copy-pasted from a 26 May article published in the same paper as an op-ed by G Sampath, reported the News Minute.

The article has been pulled from its website while the newspaper is “investigating charges of plagiarism”, according to its website.

The Bar Council of India (BCI) in 2010 said it was in talks with government agency Software Technology Parks of India to design cost effective or free anti-plagiarism software for law schools and others.
