Furore over exam candidate

Kokrajhar, Feb. 1: Various student unions like the AASU and Absu have demanded a proper inquiry into allegations of a non-collegiate person writing an exam for another student in the LLB first semester examination at Kokrajhar Law College here in the district.

The student unions expressed shock over the incident and demanded action against those involved.

Controversy arose at Kokrajhar Law College after a person was caught writing the paper (Constitutional Law) for Birfung Narzary, the deputy registrar (administrative) of Bodoland University, in the semester examination on December 27 last year.

The matter came to light on December 30 when Narzary appeared for the next exam.

The AASU and Absu today lodged separate written complaints with the college authorities seeking a proper inquiry into the matter.

While the exam was going on, the invigilator found that the person writing the exam was not a student of the college and asked him to leave the examination hall.

Students of the college said the authorities should have not allowed Narzary to sit for the remaining exams and expelled him. But the college authorities tried to keep the matter under wraps.

U.C. Nath, vice-principal of the college, who was present during the examination, said after finding out that someone else was appearing for the exam they immediately ordered him to leave. Principal-in-charge of the college Berlao K. Karjee said nobody informed him.

“It is really shameful if such a thing has really happened. Authorities should take prompt action against the guilty,” said Absu general secretary Romeo P. Narzary.

The AASU demanded action against Narzary and also asked him to resign from his post.

When contacted, Narzary denied that he sent somebody else to write the paper for him. It was a conspiracy against him, he said.
