Distance education exam results to be delayed

The Distance Education students of Bangalore University will have to wait for a longer time for the results of their examination, conducted in November-December 2013, as the varsity has decided to withhold them, following the surfacing of cash-for-marks scam.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, BU Registrar (Evaluation) K N Ninge Gowda said the decision came in the wake of the scam. Vedamurthy, a former Syndicate member and a few lecturers were taken into custody by the police, in this regard.

“We have locked up the centre where the evaluation was taking place. We want to ensure that such an incident does not repeat and want to find out who all were involved,” Gowda said.

On Friday, the university will conduct its Syndicate meeting where a decision will be taken on whether to conduct an internal inquiry or an external one and whether any university officials should be part of the inquiry at all.

The university has also withdrawn the responsibility of “chief custodian” that was given to Kotraiah, a lecturer and a co-accused in the scam.
