The Delhi University (DU) has cancelled re-examination in
sociology scheduled for August 19. In all 112 students from Janki Devi
Memorial College were supposed to take the examination after a packet containing
the answer-scripts went missing.
The university on July 20 notified that the students will have to take the exams
again. According to officials in the dean’s office, the university has already intimated
the college to inform the students about the cancellation of the exams and that
the missing packet of answer-scripts has been retrieved.
We have retrieved the missing packet containing the answer-scripts of the sociology
paper. It was delivered at a wrong centre and was kept with other packets. It has
been returned to us on Wednesday and immediately we decided to cancel the examination
scheduled for Friday.
The answer scripts will be evaluated at the earliest and we are hopeful that results
will be declared without further delay, said R C Sharma, the dean of examinations.
Besides, Sharma also promised punitive action against the erring official, who was
responsible for delivering the packet containing the answer-scripts at the wrong
address. An inquiry is on to fix responsibility and punitive action against the
erring official will be taken, said Sharma. The Delhi University cancelled the re-examination
of the sociology paper for the 114 students of Janki Devi Memorial College scheduled
for August 19. The University decided to conduct the exams as the bundle of answer
scripts went missing. But DU managed to retrieve the papers and has now constituted
a three-member inquiry into the incident and fix responsibility.
