Muzaffarnagar: The UP Board of High School and Intermediate Education has cancelled the candidature of a class XII student and barred him from appearing in future board exams for allegedly making derogatory remarks against Chief Minister Mayawati in his answer sheet, official sources said.
Two Principals and five staff have also been suspended in this connection, they added.
The incident came to light when the answer sheets of Kayamuddin Ansari, a student of Inter College in Devariya district, was being evaluated here in April.
Ansari wrote some insulting remarks in his answer sheets after he was allegedly given the question paper of Sanskrit instead of his option for English on the day of examination. The UP Board had subsequently ordered an inquiry into the matter.
Ansari has now been barred from appearing in any exam in the state by the Board.
