BENGALURU: Bangalore University has constituted a Syndicate sub-committee to inquire into the recent answer script tampering scam reported at BNM College, Banashankari.

The committee will be headed by senior Syndicate member, Dr Gangadhar. Vice-Chancellor B Thimme Gowda told reporters on Wednesday, “The answer scripts of all the students who wrote the exams at BNM College centre are in police custody. We will verify if any other cases of tampering have taken place before declaring the results.”

The committee will also inquire into the case against Surana College, which is said to have allowed students with shortage of attendance to appear for the examinations after collecting penalty illegally. BU issued a notice to the college, to which the college replied that no such incident had taken place.

‘No Approval,

No Result’

The Syndicate has resolved not to declare the results of several BEd colleges which have not got admission approval from the university. Following a court direction, the university gave permission to students from such colleges to appear for the exams. But, now the students have brought a court direction for the declaration of results.

“We will appeal to the court that as per our statutes, there is no provision to declare results without verifying attendance and admission procedure,” Thimme Gowda said.

Also, from now on, those who wish to join BU  for non-teaching works must have computer knowledge.
