It has been two months since the leak of basic electrical engineering paper of first year engineering examination, but according to sources at the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) are still far from arresting the culprits. Earlier, University authorities had said, they would not declare the results until the culprit was nabbed. That time, there was also the possibility of taking re- examination at the colleges where the leak was detected. But the final decision was to do police investigation since two separate complaints were filed in the incident.
On Monday, the Vice-Chancellor of Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) Wasudeo Gade accepted that there has been no headway in the case yet. They have convened another meeting of the Board of Examination and he also mentioned that in the first meeting, it was decided that the paper checking at the two colleges, where papers were found on the mobile phones of the students, would be kept on hold. The decision was to be taken post police investigation. Now, as the consideration time has been spent without taking any decision or without any conclusion, we are worried about the students who are not involved in the act and yet their results are delayed. So, we will come up with the solution for them.
On 10th of December nearly an hour before the examination, this paper had exclusively reported that a faculty at MES College of Engineering had found the question paper of the first year engineering students in the cell phone of a few students. Although the university officials were informed, but the exam was carried out with the same set of question papers.
Later, the news came out after doing the investigation that the question paper was shared with the student of VIIT College as well. At the same time, other students are getting anxious over the uncertainty of the paper checking of examination papers. And the possibility is of taking re-examination, all of which is not yet clear.
