Update : 01 Mar 2014, 08:35 PM

The question papers of Jahangirnagar University admission test for honours first year students under 2013-14 academic session were leaked yesterday and four admission seekers led by a Daffodil University student were arrested for their involvement in this forgery.

Jahangirnagar University authority said they found an Archaeology Department student involved in the leak of Accounting and Information System Department’s question paper yesterday.

JU Proctor Professor Md Muzibur Rahman told the Dhaka Tribune: “Md Shaheb Ali, a first year student of Archaeology Department and also a volunteer of JU Bangladesh National Cadet Core, is connected with the question leak.”

He added that a big gang was behind the incident and JU authorities were trying to find out them.

Source said History Department Associate Prof Md Golam Rabbani caught one Md Noman from 217 No exam hall at new arts faculty building while the latter was receiving answers of set 1 of Accounting Department admission test question into his mobile phone from another cell number.

Later, JU proctorial team and security members detained others with the help of Noman, source added. 

Other detainees were Md Shahnewaz and Irab Rakat from Chuadanga district, Md Hridoy from Barisal district and Md Raihan Ali, a Pharmacy Department student at Daffodil University.

The detained Daffodil University student, Raihan Ali, told the Dhaka Tribune, “I made a deal of Tk2,50,000 for per set answer with the detained admission seekers while Shaheb Ali of Archaeology Department under 42nd batch sent the answers through his mobile SMS 15 minutes after the exam started.”

JU sources said Shaheb was working for the admission test as a BNCC volunteer and they suspected that the university teachers and officials might be involved in the question leak.  

The admission seekers and their guardians along with many university teachers and students expressed concerns over the question paper leak.

They demanded suspension of the Accounting Department’s admission test.

History Department teacher Golam Rabbani said: “I have heard the answers were completely similar to the question papers and JU authorities should suspend the exam and its result immediately and arrange a fresh admission test for this department.”

However, proctor Prof Md Muzibur Rahman said the university authorities would decide whether the admission test would be suspended or not but he played his role as a proctor properly.

“All arrestees would be handed over to Ashulia police station after preliminary interrogation and we are hopeful that we would find out the whole gang,” he said.

Contacted over cell phone, Mohammad Ali, deputy registrar (education) and the secretary member of central admission direction committee disconnected the call, saying he was busy.
