MBBS result: internal examiners grilled
Tribune News Service

Amritsar, August 13
A parallel can be drawn between the alleged tampering of results by certain examiners of Baba Farid University of Health Sciences and the Punjab Public Services Commission scam.

According to sources, future of many candidates of medical colleges remain at the mercy of the examiners who could be instrumental in tampering with the record.

The case of alleged tampering of the result of MBBS (first professional) might be just a tip of the iceberg. One of the internal examiners of bio-chemistry who reported the rot in the system to the higher authorities could face the music.

The inquiry officers, Dr Jagdish Gargi, head, Forensic Sciences and Dr H.S. Gill, Medical Superintendent, who questioned both the internal examiners in the office of the Principal, Government Medical College, here for more than four hours failed to reach any conclusion. It is learnt that Dr Kuldip Singh Sodhi who had reportedly refused to sign the “extra ward list” of bio-chemistry paper had brought to the notice of the inquiry committee that results of at least two students Rishav Kumar (roll number 1121107) and Saurav Arora (roll number 1121109) were tampered with.

However, the university authorities have yet to decide the issue of the declaration of results which had been withheld due to non-signing of one of the examiners on the award lists. At one point the higher authorities mooted that if two external examiners and one senior internal examiner had put their signatures on the award list then there was no need to get the signature of fourth examiner.
