The mass probe body formed over alleged question leak of medical and dental admission tests today reported to have found proof of leak.

It also placed eleven recommendations which include retaking of the admission tests and canceling the published result. 

The findings of the 15-member body, led by Prof Anu Muhammad, were made public at a press conference at Dhaka University TSC this afternoon.

"Emails questions and answers similar to the real test were sent to admission seekers at 6:41am, around 3 hour before the tests," said IT expert Fida Huq.

The screenshots of the emails and other web links were presented in the report.

Prof Anu Muhammad alleged that the government’s repeated denounce to the fact because top officials within the state are involved with the process.

This year’s medical tests were marred with allegations of question leak and followed by weeks of protests demanding a retake of the tests.

The government showed indifference to the protestors. The medical admission process has been completed already.

Later, eminent individuals of the society formed a probe committee to investigate the allegations of question leak.
