Future docs caught copying in GMC
Cellphones used for unfair means
Srinagar, Aug 5: Final year MBBS students in Government Medical College Srinagar have been caught red-handed by Kashmir University authorities copying from cellphone and paper material. The incident occurred on August 1 when the future doctors were appearing in Surgery Paper-I.
Sources said the supervisory staff at the GMC had remained a mute spectator to it and an explanation has been sought from them. They said that on a tip off, Controller Examinations, Kashmir University, Prof A M Shah along with Deputy Controller immediately dropped into the centre and were astonished on seeing the students copying. They said that both entered the exam centre as commoners.
“The Kashmir University authorities had disembarked half-way from their vehicle in order to witness the scene themselves. They didn’t even inform Principal GMC about it. At the first sight, they found the unfair means going on and booked five students,” said a student wishing anonymity.
Interestingly, the examination centre was shifted to GMC in 2009 on the request of former Principal Dr Shahida Mir. However, soon after the incident KU authorities have shifted the examination venue back to the varsity.
A senior doctor in GMC said: “These final year MBBS students are about to jump into hospitals as doctors. Now how can patients pose trust in doctors after such incidents. It is shameful for us.”
Admitting that students were involved in copying, Controller Examinations, KU, Prof A M Shah told this newspaper that five students have been booked for unfair means.
“It was quite unfortunate that unfair examination was going on in such a prestigious institution. I was surprised to find MBBS final year students involving in cheating and copying. A mobile and other objectionable material was recovered from the spot,” he said.
A case, Shah said, has been framed against them for unfair means. “The case will be placed before a committee and punishment will be accorded. The mobile was placed in front of the table and the candidate was easily copying from it without any notice taken by supervisory staff,” he told Greater Kashmir.
About the supervisory staff, he said that explanation has been sought from them.
Despite repeated attempts, nobody from GMC could be contacted.
