Bhatkal: Syed Khaleelur Rahman, NRI entrepreneur and philanthropist hailing from here and based in the United Arab Emirates for many years, has been awarded an honorary doctorate by the Aldersgate College of Ireland.

His name was recommended for the honour by Hali Management Consultancy in Sharjah and India Trade and Exhibition Centre.
