JU Admission: 3 held for question leak bid
Three people including two students of Jagannath University (JnU) were detained at Jahangirnagar University for their alleged attempt to leak questions during C Unit admission test yesterday.
The JnU students are Sakibul Sadat, first year student of physics and Ashik E Atahar Mezbah, final year student of political science. Ashik is also a former deputy office secretary of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) of Dhaka south city unit.
Anwar Hossain, who drove a vehicle taking them to the campus, was also detained.
Sources said the suspects offered some admission seekers C unit question paper on Sunday night.
One of the admission seekers informed it to his relative Mahbubur Rahman Nil, a master's student of philosophy and vice-president of JU BCL. They later teamed with the university authorities and held the trio.
During questioning, they revealed the name of one Jakir Hossain, who, they claimed, was also involved with them. The phone number of Jakir provided by the detainees was found switched off.
The JnU students admitted their involvement in a deal involving Tk 4 lakh. Anwar denied his involvement and introduced himself as an Uber driver, saying he was hired for a trip for Tk 4,500.
BCL leader Nil said, “They offered my relative the question paper of C Unit for Tk 5 lakh. Hearing this, I informed the university authorities and with their help we caught them.”
Contacted, Proctor Sikder Md Zulkernine said, “We held a gang with the help of students and got some documents related to admission test. Their fate will be decided through a mobile court later.”
