10 final year MBBS examinees  caught copying a la Munna Bhai

Thursday, 22 October 2020 | PNS | Lucknow

Ostensibly taking a cue from Munna Bhai, 10 MBBS students used micro-sized Bluetooth earphones for cheating but ran out of luck during their final year examination in Agra and were caught on Tuesday. 

A total of 90 students were writing the paper of ophthalmology in the 8-11 am shift at Khandari Campus of Dr BR Ambedkar University, Agra on Tuesday and during a sudden inspection by a flying squad, 10 students of FH Medical College were caught using Bluetooth communicators around necks as ‘tabeez’ (talisman) and cheating. These devices had a SIM card installed in them and were working as two-way communication devices. The examines were being provided answers by their friends from outside the hall. 

One of the flying squad members became suspicious upon noticing one of the examinees mumbling softly. He later carried out a body search and found the device on the student. Similar devices were found on nine others. 

Later, the examination centre chief filed a complaint against these students in New Agra police station. 

The MBBS examinees caught cheating were identified as Rahul Yadav, Nadeem Ali, Mohit Saini, Naved Hasan, Deepak Singh, Kunal Sharma, Rahul Babu, Amit Yadav, Mohit Yadav, and Honey Jaswani.

Chief proctor of the university, Dr Manoj Srivastava, said that an FIR was filed against the erring students and Senior Superintendent of Police Babloo Kumar was requested to not only take action but also bust the racket. 

He said that the university would be taking action against the students.

Condemning the act of cheating by would-be doctors, social activist Deep Sharma said that if they had not been caught, they would have passed even though they did not deserve it.
