BENGALURU: The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) has decided to withdraw results of students who were involved in the answer script tampering scam.
Dr Sachidanand, Registrar Evaluation, RGUHS, told Express, “We have issued notices to all those involved in the scam and asked them to return the marks cards. Some have already returned their marks cards, but we are not able to reach two candidates.”
According to Central Crime Branch (CCB) officials, over 10 students doing their post graduate course from medical colleges across the state were involved in the scam and their role had been proved after an inquiry. All the 10 had applied for degree certificates in the convocation held during March 2015.
When contacted, Dr K S Ravindranath, vice-chancellor of RGUHS, said, “It has been decided not to issue the degree certificates pending inquiry.
We are waiting for investigating officials to file a chargesheet after which we will take a final call on withdrawing their degrees by annulling the results.”
“Since the decision needs to be taken in consultation with the syndicate, we will place this before the next syndicate,” the VC said.
According to authorities, once the process of annulling results and withdrawing degree certificates by declaring the candidates debarred is done, the Medical Council of India, Dental Council of India and Karnataka Medical Council will be informed.
