Malda, May 7: The undergraduate exams at Chanchal College were held under heavy police presence today following the ransack at the institution yesterday.
Eight students were found copying at the college today.
There were two sub-inspectors, six constables and 30 civic police recruits at the college. There were also four armed RAF jawans and a regular mobile police patrol.
“I have lodged a complaint naming four persons for yesterday’s violence. It is up to the police to take action. Today, eight students, all from Samsi College, were caught cheating and were asked to leave. The large police presence ensured that there was no trouble today,” said Gohul Amin, the teacher in-charge of Chanchal College.
The Part III exams in history, geography, political science, Bengali and Sanskrit were held today. There were 510 students from Samsi College and Harishchandrapur College taking the exams.
Sanatan Das, the controller of examinations of Gour Banga University, said there were some problems at Kaliachak College today. “Some outsiders and relatives of examinees tried to enter Kaliachak and cause problems. They were chased away immediately by police,” he said.
The vice-chancellor of Gour Banga University Gopal Mishra, said a five-member committee had been asked to submit a report on yesterday’s ransack by May 26. The committee will decide on the re-examination of the Part III history paper that had to be postponed because of yesterday’s violence.
Amin has named Zakir Hossain, Amanat Sarkar and Subhamoy Sadya, all ex-students of Chanchal College, and Mujibur Rehman, an outsider whom he had recognised, in a complaint filed with the Chanchal police station.
