HC directs evaluation of PU papers

The City Crime Branch (CCB), which raided the Aditya Teachers’ School on June 26, 2007 arrested Shivakumar and others while they were dictating questions and answers to 30 students in respect to the Physics examination. The exams were supposed to be held the following day. Four cellphones and cash of 1.5 lakh were also seized from them.

The following day the PU Department compared the question papers issued by it with the one recovered from the school and found that 23 questions equivalent to 35 percent marks tallied. Based on this, the Department annulled the results of the Physics exam of 18 students and allowed them to appear for the remaining papers.

When the students challenged this before the High Court, Justice B S Patil ordered to evaluate the answers of the previous day’s recovered papers and the answer sheets of the students the following day and submit them separately in a sealed cover.

Alternative land sought
Some of the petitioners whose lands were acquired for the NICE project have moved the High Court seeking an alternative land at the Bidadi township.

V R Ramesh Babu and others had challenged the land acquisition at Gottigere saying that they had bought converted land in 1995, but it was acquired for the project in 1998.
They have contended that the autorities did not call for objections during the acquisition. Since a township is coming up near Bidadi, the petitioners have prayed the court to authorities to allot them a land of an equal dimension in the township or quash the acquisition.

Justice B S Patil has ordered notice to the Urban Development Department, KIADB and NICE.
