From the Archives (Jan. 10, 1919): Leakage of Question Papers at Calcutta University.

The enquiry into the leakage of question papers in connection with the recent Calcutta University examinations by a Committee sitting under the Chairmanship of Sir Asutosh Mukerjee has resulted in an almost extraordinary situation being created. The majority of the committee signed a report to the effect that they have failed to make any discovery that throws light upon the leakage. A minority report makes diverse charges of negligence against the Registrar and of indifference against the majority of paper setters who appear to have refused to help in the enquiry. The result is that the fresh batch of controversial resolutions appear on the Senate’s Agenda, one of which goes so far as to suggest that two of the majority have no power to sign the report while another moves that the note of dissent be expunged. Both majority and minority reports declare that the leakage was brought about by an organised body of persons anxious to bring discredit on the University.
