The West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination (WBJEE 2008) for admission to undergraduate courses in Engineering/Technology/ Medical/Dental /Veterinary and Pharmacy in Universities/Colleges in West Bengal and B. Arch Course in Bengal Engineering and Science University, Shibpur and Jadavpur University scheduled to be held today (April 20, 2008) has been postponed by the WBJEE board after the physics, chemistry and biology papers were leaked.
The next date for the exam will be decided when the board meets next week with higher education minister Sudarshan Roychaudhuri and the higher education secretary in attendance.
Two persons, Arun Chowdhury and Mihir Dandapatt, were arrested on Saturday in West Midnapore’s Ghatal, where the three papers were being sold for Rs 2.5 lacs.
The arrests came hours after the police received a call. The caller gave the police a cellphone number and said they would know abo-ut JEE papers being leaked after tracing the user of the mobile.
The police have informed JEE chairman Siddhartha Dutta and senior higher education officials about the sale of the papers. "The papers recovered from Ghatal were brought to the board’s Salt Lake office for verification on Saturday morning," said a senior higher education department official.
After a thorough check, the duplicate papers were found to be identical to the original ones, barring figures and diagrams.
"Figures and diagrams were missing. However, the rest of the questions were the same as those in the original papers. We immediately decided to defer WBJEE 2008," said the official.
The duplicate question papers were on physics, chemistry and biology. Significantly, mathematics was not among the papers recovered. "This is a clear indication that medical exam seats were the target," explained the official.
