The University of Mumbai, on Thursday, appointed MG Shirhatti, a member of the academic council, to probe if there had been a leak of the final year commerce paper (TYBCom) on Wednesday.

Vice chancellor Rajan Welu-kar, however, insisted that there had been no leak. He also did not commit to a time frame by which the probe report would be ready.

“The university can make a statement only after a thorough enquiry,” said Welukar. “Studen-ts shouldn’t suffer. We will try and see to it that such an error does not occur again.”

The university’s recent goof-ups, including the last-minute change in exam centres and officials forgetting to print a question paper, caused uproar in the legislative council. “The university has ordered a probe into the incident and I will initiate action against whoever is found responsible for this mess,’’ said Rajesh Tope, minister of higher and technical education.
