KOTTAYAM: Inspector General of Police, T J Jose, reportedly denied all charges of exam malpractice levelled against him and called it an official-level conspiracy against him, before the MG University syndicate subcommittee here on Monday. The convenor of the sevenmember syndicate sub-committee on Students Welfare and Grievances, which is inquiring into the exam malpractice incident, Prof C I Abdul Latheef, told ‘Express’ that the IG, who is now under suspension over the alleged incident, has rebutted all the charges levelled against him and said it was a conspiracy brokered by someone at the official level who has issues against him.

Prof Latheef said evidence have to be collected from  three or four witnesses and the whole formalities would be completed by June 11. Out of the 57 people called to depose, only 11 co-operated with the subcommittee by giving statements.

As the remaining witnesses are judicial officers, there is some legality in recording their statements and hence the delay, said P K Firoz, another member of the sub-committee. The judicial officials had also appeared for the LLB exam in the off-campus mode at St Paul’s College at Kalamassery in Ernakulam along with IG T J Jose on May 4, when he was caught cheating in the exam by an invigilator.
