HC notice to JNU V-C over exam fraud

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued a notice to the vice-chancellor of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and six other university staff on a petition alleging that they had committed irregularities in the M Phil, Arts and Aesthetic Entrance Examination for the year 2006-07. Issuing notice to V-C, two associate professors, chairperson, School of Arts and Aesthetics and the dean, Justice Badar Durez Ahmed asked the University to furnish record pertaining to the examination by February 20, the next date of hearing. Seeking court’s direction to declare the entrance test null and void and cancel the admission of six students, Atulesh K Anant, the counsel for petitioner Laxman Singh, a former JNU student, alleged that the members who had conducted the entrance test on May 15 last year were known to some students and had qualified them for M.Phil course, despite the fact that they did not fulfil even the eligibility criteria. Claiming that he had obtained information through the RTI Act, the counsel said his client had fulfiled all required qualifications but they disqualified him intentionally. The petitioner, who did his masters from JNU, sought a direction to university management to re-evaluate his examination papers and conduct another viva test. TNN
