In BR Ambedkar University, officials received a major shock when they found out that amongst 12,800 enrolled students, over 20,000 of them have passed in the B.Ed exams.
The officials had to withhold the results in the last minute to solve the issue of over 8,000 ghost students. Vice chancellor Mohd Muzammil ordered a probe in the matter and several authorities are expected to be arrested for this major irregularity.
Prof Manoj Srivastava from the Varsity told Times of India, "The matter of 7,000 suspicious students came to light when the private agency preparing the BEd results objected that they only had the data of around 12,800 students while copies of over 20,000 students were checked. As the agency showed helplessness in declaring results, the VC issued letters to all the private colleges, ordering them to come up with the list of enrolled students. Private colleges then claimed that they had taken more students against seats lying vacant and these extra students also took the exam."
Not just that, another university official told that the private colleges started showing a 2014-15 High Court order to justify their wrongdoings.
According to him, these ghost students could have enrolled even a day before the exams. The university has demanded the student data and CDs of their counseling sessions to identify the students who actually came to write the B.Ed Exams.
