5 held for cheating in DU B unit admission test

Five, including one Dhaka University (DU) student and one admission seeker, were arrested for allegations of cheating in the admission test for “Kha/B unit” held on September 22 under the Faculty of Arts.

Of the five, three were arrested allegedly attempting to leak question papers in front of the Central Shaheed Minar on September 21, while two were detained for cheating on the examination day, confirmed the DU proctor.

The two who were arrested on the examination day were identified as undergraduate student Shahzahan Ali and admission seeker Tansen Miah, the former of whom was taking a proxy exam for the latter.

Shahzahan Ali, who is a student of the international relations department at DU, was caught while taking the exam on behalf of Tansen at the Faculty of Business Studies Centre Room 6054. Shahzahan is a resident student at Master Da Surja Sen Hall, and Tansen is the son of Sadek Miah from Shibpur, Narshingdi.

Tansen claimed that he had negotiated a payment of Tk3.5 lakhs for Shahzahan to take the test in his stead.

On the other hand, Shahzahan Ali claimed he was a cancer patient and said: “I take part in such illegal work because I needed money for my treatment.”

However, Shahzahan's  friends claimed that he had no such disease or affliction.

“On Friday, around 11:00 pm, the Proctorial team detained Shahzahan from Room 6054 of the University's Business Faculty. Shahzahan Ali followed a strategy of having the same hair cut as the one in the admit card picture,” acting proctor Professor M Amzad Ali said.

With the assistance of Shahzahan's confession, admission seeker Tansen Mia was detained from near the Aparajeo Bangla with the help of the university journalists.

According to the confession, there was a major syndicate involved in the cheating operation, members of whom were able to escape.

Proctor Amzad Ali said: “We tracked Shahzahan on the basis of the secret information. Later the admission seeker along with Shahzahan were handed over to the Shahbagh Police Station. We will sue them.”

A total of 32,749 students are contesting for 2,363 seats in the B Unit exam this year, averaging 13.86 candidates per seat. There are 122 more seats available than last year.
