BANGALORE : The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) has decided to summon for questioning the students said to be involved in the post-graduate examination scam.
The decision was taken at the Syndicate meeting held on Friday after the final report of the RGUHS inquiry committee was submitted. According to university sources, 10 students will be issued notices and questioned.
After questioning the students, the university will hand over the case to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
In August, RGUHS received an anonymous letter stating that some answer scripts had been separated, changed and re-stitched. Copies of the letter were sent to the Chief Minister and other ministers.
The university constituted a probe committee headed by Syndicate member Rajesh Shenoy. The committee found that several answer scripts were tampered with.
Meanwhile, top university officials, including the vice-chancellor and two registrars, criticised Syndicate members following media reports on the forensic test results.
The V-C directed the Syndicate members not to speak to the media saying the university is the authority which will communicate. The media too will be issued notices on this, a source said.
