BANGALORE: The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) has filed an FIR against 10 post-graduate medical students allegedly involved in the tampering of answer scripts.

Two weeks ago, the RGUHS inquiry committee found evidence that the papers were tampered to help students.

Express reported the scam on August 7, when a three-member committee, comprising senior syndicate members of the university, had just begun looking into the matter.

Two weeks ago, the Forensic Department and the Andhra Pradesh-based company that printed the answer scripts confirmed that 23 scripts were indeed tampered with.

An RGUHS official said, “Right now, we know the names of the students whose papers were tampered with, so a complaint has been filed. We will wait for the investigation to reveal the role officials played and at what level.”

The university has also withheld the marks cards and degree certificates of the students said to be involved.
