The Tribhuvan University has formed a five member comittee to investigate into a question paper leakage during an entrance examination for the Institute of Engineering (IoE).
The committee led by a former TU registrar includes, among others, Associate professor at IOE Binod parajuli.
Candidates resorted to vandalism at the offices of the dean and the examination department alleging that the papers were leaked prior to the test. According to TU Vice Chancellor Hira Bahadur Maharjan, the university will decide further action in the case as recommended by the committee.
Various student unions, accusing the IoE dean of leaking the question paper sets, have demanded fresh tests.
"Photocopies of handwritten question papers along with their answers were found prior to the test," said Nepal Students' President Ranjeet Karna, who was present at the entrance venue. He added that the incident has defamed the glorious history of the IoE and the dean was responsible for it.
