Delhi University authorities have sought a CBI probe into this year's entrance exam for medical and dental seats. Suspicions are that this could turn out to be another scam in the varsity.
The move to approach the premier investigating agency comes after an internal inquiry into the Delhi University Medical Entrance Test (DUMET) 2011 found irregularities in the process but could not fix liability. In June this year, police had unearthed a racket involving the use of fake SC/ST certificates for admission into DU colleges. "A large number of students, who normally would not be expected to clear the prestigious medical exam, have made it to the list of successful candidates," a DU source said. The university suspects that a bunch of students who got through DUMET were aided by a gang of racketeers on payment of a huge amount of money. The varsity is not sure how exactly the students were helped. CBI officials have confirmed receiving a complaint from Delhi University for a probe into the matter. The university had received numerous complaints at various stages of the DUMET admission process. "As the number of complaints increased, the university took cognizance and instituted an internal inquiry. After the inquiry submitted its report which prima facie found certain irregularities, the university decided to approach the CBI last month," said the dean of examinations, RC Sharma. As per highly-placed sources in the DU administration, the complaints were against students who figured among the top in the DUMET merit list but could not get through the entrance exam of the less prestigious Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University. Sharma said: "The prestige of the test is our priority and we want to know if there has been any corrupt practice at any stage of the exam and admissions. Since that can only be probed by a proper investigating agency, the university wrote to the CBI." CBI officials said the complaint was being examined. After a formal investigation is started, the agency would collect examination papers and other relevant documents from DU. "Formal investigations would begin soon after a preliminary enquiry or a regular case is registered," a CBI officer said. Earlier this year, after Delhi University was rocked by a major admission scam, police had arrested the mastermind, Himanshu Gupta, and found he had faked caste certificates to get about 25 students admitted in top colleges such as SRCC, Kirori Mal and Sri Venkateswara. The scam was unearthed on June 25 and three persons were arrested, including lower level DU staffers.
