KOTTAYAM: The Mahatma Gandhi University Syndicate sub-committee, which is inquiring into the copying incident involving IG T J Jose, will take evidence from him.

The committee has also decided to direct the IG to be present for the same over phone as well as by registered post. He would be given two chances if he would not turn up for the first evidence collection. If the official would not be present for them too, then he would be considered guilty and action would be taken against him accordingly. The evidence collection will be held at the University Guest House.

Meanwhile, the sub-committee has also found in its preliminary inquiry that error has been occurred on the part of the college in the incident. One of the invigilators was an off-campus faculty. He was found signed in the invigilators’ register book submitted by the college before the committee.

The college principal and the additional chief superintendent posted by the varsity only have the right to appoint invigilators that too from the college concerned. However, it was seen flouted at Kalamasserry College.

The off-campus faculty was found to have done invigilation in the room where the IG attended the examination. The details have to be collected from the college itself. So it was decided to go to the Kalamassery St Paul’s College, where the copying incident was reported, to collect evidence from there.

The next sitting of the committee will be held on June 2. Further action would be taken according to the evidence collected.
