Muzaffarpur: Bihar, the state which has been in news courtesy the Class 12 toppers' scam, is again in the spotlight for a similar reason.

According to the Hindustan Times, nearly 30 students enrolled in the second year of Bhim Rao Ambedkar Bihar University's Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) course for session 2013-16 have been declared pass, even though they had not written a single word in their answer sheets.

The BRABU is headquartered at Muzaffarpur in north Bihar.

 

The results of the candidates were declared recently.

The irregularity came to light during an inquiry conducted by the university officials upon getting a number of complaints from students.

 

The daily has quoted examination controller-cum-proctor of BRABU Satish Kumar Rai as saying: “The matter came to light when the students applied for the scrutiny of their marks. When the answer sheets were taken out, we found that not a single word has been written on 30 answer sheets. But, passing marks have been awarded to them. All these answer sheets are of LND College of Motihari in East Champaran district”.

Notably, this is not the first time that marks have been allotted on the blank answer sheets in BRABU.

Last year, marks were awarded on 40 blank answer sheets of final year examination of homeopathy.
