Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science & Technology University (BSMRSTU) authorities detained on Saturday night, twelve members of an unidentified gang infamous for leaking university admission examination questions.

According to the authorities, they handed the twelve over to the police. Of the detained, seven are current BSMRSTU students.

Upon questioning the accused, the university authorities have determined the prime suspect to be Babul Shikder of Accounting and Information Systems who is on the run.

BSMRSTU Proctor Dr Rajiur Rahman said the perpetrators falsely promised to hand over the question papers to "A" unit examination admission aspirants before the exam. They demanded Tk3 lakh from each examinee and also kept their certificates and credentials so that the examinees would keep mum about the whole incident.

Acting on a tipoff, the university proctorial team raided Bijoy Dibos Hall, room no 512, and detained eight students on Saturday night. Their confession in turn led to the detainment of four other perpetrators.

Calling the question leak accusation a hoax, the proctor said: "The detained were duping the aspirants, taking advantage of their situation. No question has been leaked.

"We handed over the accused twelve to the police," he added.

Promising punitive punishment for the offenders, Prof Dr MA Sattar, convenor of the university admission directorial committee, said: "We found some proof of a possible involvement of few university officials in primary investigation. We are considering the matter as a top priority."

"We cannot reveal any names of the university officials yet, for the sake of a proper investigation," he further said.

Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Md Shahjahan warned that creating anarchy would not be tolerated in the university as punitive action would be taken against that.

Gopalganj police station OC Monirul Islam confirmed that cases have been filed against the twelve perpetrators.
