Students Caught Cheating During RGUHS PGET

Fifty-two students were caught indulging in malpractice during the state post-graduate entrance test conducted by Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) on Sunday. The incident was reported at the M S Ramaiah College centre.

The students' answerscripts were confiscated and they were not allowed to finish the exam, the chief superintendent of the centre said. According to him, the candidates were found marking the question paper when they were explicitly told not to do so.

"The second instruction in the paper clearly asks students not to write anything on the question paper," said RGUHS registrar S Vasantha Kumar. He rued the fact that the students deliberately disobeyed university rules.

RGUHS evaluation registrar S Sachidanand said penalty for writing on the question paper is immediate expulsion from the examination hall. Vasantha Kumar said one of the caught students threatened to make a criminal charge against the university for alleged paper leakage. "I have not received any such complaints of the paper having leaked," the registrar added. He refused to confirm the number of candidates who were debarred from the centre following the incident.

Accoding to sources, a few students had alleged a leak some days ago, saying question papers were being sold by touts in a hotel for an undisclosed sum.
