The Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur has withheld the results of 30 students after a probe revealed that some of them cheated in the IIT-JEE exam at a centre in Punjab.
The Gyani Jail Singh Engineering College in Bathinda has been black-listed and three teachers, including the centre in-charge, have been debarred from participating in any administrative work of the IIT.
Results of all other candidates will be out on May 25.
IIT-Kanpur registrar Sanjeev Kashalakar said the decision to hold back the results was taken on the basis of a report submitted by a team from IIT-Roorkee, which was constituted to go into the reports of cheating. The report said the students were also given extra time to solve the paper.
The IIT administration has also constituted a three-member committee to probe the matter in detail. It has been asked to submit its report by June 5, Kashalakar said. Over four lakh candidates at 1,051 centres across the country appeared for the IIT-JEE on April 10 for which IIT-Kanpur was the nodal agency.
