College V-P among 5 held for exam malpractice
Police arrested five persons, including a college vice-principal and an engineering student, for indulging in malpractice during JNTU engineering supplementary examinations on Monday.
Acting on a tip-off, the Special Operations Team (SOT) of LB Nagar zone conducted a raid at a residence at Imamguda in Hayatnagar and arrested G Vineet Goud, 21, a student of Annamacharya Engineering College, his friend A Bharath, 25, N Vishnu, 28, a mediator, G Sunil Kumar, 30, chief examiner of Narayana Engineering & Technical College in Jafferguda, Hayatnagar and R Venkata Krishna, 31, vice-principal of Narayana Engineering & Technical College.
According to SOT inspector K Narsing Rao, Vineet, currently pursuing B Tech final year at Annamacharya Engineering College in Hayathnagar, had a backlog from the III year and he was supposed to appear for the supplementary exam at Narayana Engineering & Technical College on Monday. Instead of preparing for the exam and giving the written test, Vineet hatched a plan to clear the exam through illegal means and sought the help of his senior in the college, Bharat. Bharat then contacted Vishnu, an ex-employee of Narayana Engineering College, who in turn spoke to Sunil and Venkata Krishna and struck a deal for Rs 10,000. “As per the deal, Vineet has to pay Rs 10,000 to others so that he can take the exam at Bharat’s house,“ Hayatnagar inspector J Narender Goud said.
As per the plan, Vineet did not go to the exam centre and waited at Bharat’s house at Imamguda. After the exam started, with the help of Sunil and Venkat, Vishnu brought the question paper (subject: Heat transfer) along with an answer booklet to Bharat’s house.
While Vineet was writing the answers with the help of Bharat, SOT team arrested the trio and, based on their confession, nabbed Sunil and Venkata Krishna from the exam centre.
Police seized the hall ticket, answer booklet with OMR sheet, nominal roll sheet, attendance sheet, question paper, Rs 7,800 cash and eight mobile phones from the possession of the culprits. They were handed over to Hayatnagar police and a case was registered against the accused under sections 420, 408 of the IPC and Section 8 of the Andhra Pradesh Public Examination (Prevention of Malpractice and Unfair Means) Act, 1997.
