The Bachelor of Arts examination of ruling Awami League lawmaker for reserved seats for women Tamanna Nusrat Bubli was cancelled on Saturday for appearing for the exam by proxies.

A proxy of Tamanna was identified at Narsingdi Government College centre on Saturday and expelled.

The proxy, bearing the name Asha, sat for the examination on behalf of Tamanna.

The police, however, took no action against her after the invigilator confirmed that she was a substitute examinee, said sources at the college.

Tamanna Nusrat Bubli filled out her BA examination form under Bangladesh Open University and hired Asha to appear at BA examination on her behalf, they added.

College principal Habibur Rahman told journalists that the BA exams of Tammanna were cancelled for appearing for the exams by proxies and a committee was formed to investigate the matter.
