 The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) has directed three students, said to be involved in the recent marks card scam, to take the examinations again. Following allegations of malpractice since 2011, the university syndicate had constituted a sub-committee to conduct an inquiry and submit the report. In January, the committee submitted a report indicating the involvement of university officials in the scam. The university then referred the case to Criminal Investigation Department (CID). According to the sub-committee report, three MBBS students who had failed in the main exams allegedly managed to get final marks cards stating they had passed. The students are said to have confessed in front of the syndicate sub-committee. Dr K S Sriprakash, Vice- Chancellor of RGUHS, said, “We have referred the case to the CID and the students who were involved in the malpractice have been asked to take the examinations again. Their results have been withdrawn.” He said no action can be taken by the university as long as the case is open. Meanwhile, the technical agency which was working with the university in computing marks, has discontinued its services, though the agreement was till June.


RGUHS Vice-Chancellor Dr K S Sriprakash justifi ed the university’s decision to give a second chance to the students involved in the marks card scam. He said, “We have annulled the results and consider the students to have failed. But we have given them a chance to attempt the exams again. As the CID is carrying out an inquiry, no action will be taken till it is completed.”
