Amid the recent question paper leakage issue of B Ed entrance examination of Manipur University, students of the department of Teacher Education have demanded the authority concerned to reschedule the entrance examination and organise it only after completion of the enquiry of the incident carried out by the enquiry committee.
During a press conference held at Manipur Press Club on Sunday, Akashchand Haobam, student of the mentioned department, said that a one-member enquiry committee was formed on December 3 to investigate the November 28 B Ed entrance examination question paper leak.
However, before the completion of fact finding of the incident, higher authority of the university rescheduled the exam on December 12 which is very unfortunate, Haobam said.
He continued that many similar instances occurred in the past for which reports of the investigation were not produced so that the culprits could be punished. As such rescheduling the examination without finalising the investigation looks like a ploy to suppress the question leakage incident, Haobam said.
“What is the point of forming an enquiry committee if the exam is to be held before a final report of the investigation is produced?” he questioned.
"It is high time to take the matter seriously as it maligns the department and that will eventually demoralise the students who are pursuing the degree. Therefore, the real culprit should be found out so that such instances do not occur again in the future,” he added
He appealed to the concerned authorities not to organise the B Ed examination before finalising the ongoing enquiry committee.
While expressing his discontentment over the authorities for not being able to find any resolution even after the formation of committee, he also raised his concerns over the failure to seek any support of cyber-crime to identify the leakage of questions through social media.
