GUWAHATI, March 10: The Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) has formed a four-member commission with retired district and session judge Bipin Chandra Das as its chairman to inquire into the alleged leakage of HS Science question papers in the ongoing HS Examitions in the State.
Other members of the inquiry commission are Cotton University (CU) professor Dr. Santanu Baishya, CU professor Dr. Rajib Bhuyan and CU associate professor Dr. Manjit Bhattacharya. The Deputy Secretary (Admin) in-charge is the presenting officer for the inquiry.
The inquiry is to ascertain the actual facts for taking necessary action, besides suggesting remedial measures in future.
The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) has all along been demanding an inquiry into the allegations regarding leakage of HS Science question papers from an HS school in Goialpara. A team of the AASU led by its president Dipanko Kumar th and general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi did meet top officials of the Council demanding an inquiry to ascertain the veracity of the allegations.
According to the AASU, Goalpara Science Academy did give model question papers to its students on Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics before the examitions. “There’s in nothing unusual in it. However, the question paper tallying with the Council’s question papers is something unusual. While the question paper of Chemistry tallies 100 per cent with Council’s paper, Mathematics questions tally 96 per cent. Many questions of Physics also tally with the Council’s paper. Such tallying can’t be tural,” the students’ body said earlier.
Meanwhile, the Students’ Federation of India (SFI) also raised the demand for an inquiry so as to give justice to the students. The students’ body says that it keeps a close watch so on the inquiry so that it does not become eyewash. The SFI wants an independent inquiry into the allegations by Dispur as well.
