BANGALORE: The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) has decided to file an FIR against 10 students of post-graduation medical studies who were allegedly involved in tampering with answer scripts.

University sources told Express that it was decided to file FIR against the ten students after an internal inquiry found them to be guilty. Higher placed sources said the FIR will be filed on Wednesday.

“We had been to the police station on Tuesday to file the FIR, but the inspector was not available. We will file the FIR on Wednesday,” the source said. The final inquiry report was placed before the syndicate at a recent meeting along with the forensic report. After a long-drawn discussion, it was resolved to conduct another inquiry which also established the role of the ten students. Based on this, a decision was taken to file an FIR, sources said.

The alleged scam in the June 2014 P-G medical exams was busted recently after an anonymous letter reached the university authorities alleging tampering of answer scripts. A committee, headed by a senior syndicate member, probed the issue and submitted a report. Following this, the answer scripts were sent for forensic tests which established that they had been tampered with.
