AP police bust exam racket

The task force on Thursday arrested 13 people, including a student of Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) and 10 affiliated engineering colleges on charges of exam malpractice in which blank answer sheets were supplied to students who filled them up in comfort.

According to Deputy Commissioner of Police Jayalaxmi, college staff and the transport staff colluded in the racket which involved allowing students to leave empty answer book, with additional sheets tagged to them, in the exam and later supplying the same to them so that they can fill them up in a room by referring the books.

Reacting to this, JNTU registrar Ramana Rao said the university has nothing to do with the scam and assured of initiating action against those who are found guilty. He said show cause notice will be served to the affiliated colleges and affiliation of the institutions involved in the scam will be cancelled.

The police said staff and students of the colleges had played a role in the scam. “Invigilators are supposed to strike off the blank space left in answer books which was not done.”
