Eight dental students caught while copying

It was exam time and some students were busy chewing when the checking squad entered the hall. The moment the squad left, they spat out. No, they were not angry. They spat out the chits on which they had written the answers.

This incident happened at KGF College of Dental Science on Wednesday. A total of 33 students were writing the dental pharmacology exam (II BDS); human physiology and biochemistry (I BDS) and anatomy exam (I BDS).

Eight students were caught red-handed. In a swift move, the RGUHS (Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences) cancelled the exam centre. S Vasantha Kumar, registrar of the university, said: "All the students scheduled to take the exam in this centre have been directed to appear at the Devaraj Urs Medical College, Kolar, for the next examination."

The RGUHS was tipped off on Monday about mass copying at the dental college. Not taking any chances, the university officials immediately constituted a two-member committee comprising A G Prathab, associate professor (microbiology), M S Ramaiah Medical College, and B J Mahendra, professor and HoD (community medicine), Mandya Institute of Medical Science, on Tuesday.

"We caught eight students red-handed and left the hall. But when we came back, we saw heaps of chits in a corner of the hall. We were shocked. When we examined the chits, we found they were chewed by the students and were still moist. Worse, on the ground floor, we found a lot of study material,” Prathab said.

The chits of the eight students along with their answerscripts, study material and other chits too were confiscated. The members have taken the recording from the CCTV.
