Four aspirants and one guardian have been handed over to police and detained on Friday for involvement in admission fraudulence of Dhaka University’s (DU) “Ka” (A) unit.

DU Proctor AKM Golam Rabbani confirmed that the two admission seekers were held from the campus centers and others from outside the campus.

DU authorities have not disclosed the identity of the detainees yet in a bid to apprehend the entire syndicate. All the detainees confessed their involvement in the matter, said the DU proctor.

All four have been detained for using digital devices during the admission test, along with a guardian of an applicant.

Prof Rabbani said: “All of them have been handed over to the Shahbagh police. University authorities will file a case against the admission seekers as they were caught red handed from the center and their involvements in fraudulence have been proven.”

“Law enforcers would investigate the guardian’s involvement in the matter,” the proctor added.

Prof Rabbani alleged that some private coaching centers are behind such fraudulent activities during the entrance examinations.

“We have enough evidence in this regard. We will reveal everything after the investigation is complete,” he said.

The admission test for the first year honours courses under the Ka-unit of Dhaka University (DU) for 2018-2019 academic year was held on Friday at 87 centers inside and outside the campus from 10am to 11:30am, where 81,096 students applied against 1,750 seats.

A total of 2,72,512 admission seekers have applied for undergraduate admissions against 7,128 seats under five units in the 2018-19 academic session at DU.
