In an unprecedented move, the Patna University (PU) authorities on Saturday, 4th August, 2012 locked the postgraduate department of education and Patna Training College and handed over the keys to the Patna divisional commissioner. The functioning of these institutions had been paralyzed due to protests by a section of students against alleged irregularities in the evaluation of answer-sheets of M.Ed admission test conducted by PU last month.
The admission of selected students could not be held as scheduled on Friday, 3rd August due to the disturbances created by students. PU proctor Kriteshwar Prasad told TOI the university administration requested the Kadamkuan police station to help restore normal functioning of the institutions. But to no avail. "Only five to six candidates, who could not clear the entrance test, are creating disturbances," said the proctor. The agitating students, however, alleged though the answer-sheets at the time of test clearly indicated there would be negative marking for wrong answers, no negative marks were given to any candidate for wrong answers. Consequently, a number of candidates who did not attempt some questions for fear of negative marks could not clear the entrance test. They demanded a fresh entrance test. PU has constituted a three-member committee headed by PU science faculty dean U K Sinha to inquire into the charges. Other members of the inquiry committee are PU proctor and students' welfare dean.
