Dhaka University authority on Monday formed a probe body to reinvestigate controversial ‘Gha’ unit entrance exam test which was marred by widespread allegation of question leak.
The university authority already acknowledged the admission test question leak.
The five-member probe committee led by DU pro-vice-chancellor (academic) Professor Nasreen Ahmad included proctor AKM Golam Rabbani, acting dean of Biological Science faculty Professor Imdadul Hoque, Professor Asim Sarker and Syndicate member SM Bahalul Mojnun Chunnu as members.
It was the same body which failed to submit any report yet of last year’s question leak allegation of the same unit.
The committee was asked to launch greater investigation into question paper leak allegation to reach at the root of the scandal and submit
the report within next two weeks, said DU vice chancellor Professor Akhtaruzzaman.
Professor Nasreen Ahmad declined to make any comment regarding this.
Earlier on October 13, DU Authorities formed a three-member probe body led by Pro-vice-chancellor (administration) Muhammad Samad which found that ‘digital forgery’ occurred during ‘Gha’ unit entrance exam test.
On Sunday, a press release from the university said that the university authority would take stern action if any anomalies
are found in the controversial ‘Gha’ unit entrance exam result and admission process.
Earlier on October 16, Dhaka University published the result of ‘Gha’ unit entrance exam results amid a barrage of criticism, acknowledging the
question paper leak before the exam.
The question paper was leaked minutes before the exam, students and guardians said.
The university authorities also filed a case under the Digital Security Act against six persons and many unnamed accomplices alleging that they were involved with the leak of 72 questions of ‘Gha Unit’s admission test.
Meanwhile, many anomalies surfaced about the ‘Gha’ unit result.
Anomalies were seen in pass rate of the controversial test as the tally reached its highest point in 20 years, while some of the students broke all records of the past in obtaining marks.
