‘SRIMAN 420’ the epithet used to describe a conman fits to the hilt the students found using unfair means and practices as the number of cheating cases registered in the ongoing Devi Ahilya Vishwa Vidyalaya (DAVV) examinations reaches that charlatan mark.
Showcasing the mentality of such students is the case wherein on being caught cheating not only did the accused cause disturbance but also tore the answer sheet later accusing the invigilation staff of bias and threatening self immolation.
The incident in question occurred at Government Arts and Commerce College (GACC), which is not only the State’s biggest Government college but also the leader when it comes to the number of cheating cases. Principal Dr KC Khare said that a BA final year student Bharat Meena was caught red handed while attempting sociology paper by the examination observer doing the rounds of the college on April 13.
Although leaflets torn out from a book were found on his person Meena jumped on to denial mode and became so excited in his altercation with the invigilators and observer that at one point he even picked up the bench. The student was removed from the examination hall and brought to the control room at the college where he tried to snatch away the copy in front of the university staff and tore it in half.
Later, he accused the college staff of being biased against him and that he was implicated in a fabricated case of cheating. After he was left at the end of the exam he threatened self-immolation in his talk with his fellow students and has backtracked for good from his threat. A case of cheating was registered against him and would be presented before the Unfair Means Committee, while the college gave information of the incident to the Bhanwarkuan police.
According to examination incharge LS Baghel so far the university has officially registered 420 cases of cheating. GACC leads by 117, Old GDC 24, PG Dhar 19, Mhow 18, Devi Ahilya College 17, MB Khalsa 16, Gujarati Commerce and SN College Khandwa 14 and Harsud 12.
