Governor H.R. Bhardwaj has downplayed the significance of the internal enquiry being conducted by the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) into the tampering of answer scripts in which N.S. Ashok Kumar, Registrar (Evaluation) has been named as an accused.
Speaking to The Hindu on the sidelines of a programme here on Wednesday, Mr. Bhardwaj said that the government had ordered a CID inquiry into the allegations. “Any other report is meaningless,” he said of the internal committee set up by the RGUHS, which is expected to submit its findings to the Syndicate on January 16.
The issue of the varsity “passing failed students” was raised even in the Legislative Council. A police complaint was filed in the Tilaknagar police station alleging that students who had failed even after their marks were re-totalled were given marks cards that said they had passed the exam.
Reacting to the Governor’s statement , RGUHS Vice-Chancellor Sriprakash. K.S said the internal inquiry was part of the “procedure” that was ordered ‘long ago’.
“The inquiry was ordered by the university on December 17 and the report was submitted to me on December 31. As per procedure, we will place the report before the Syndicate for further action,” Dr. Sriprakash said.
