The Dhaka University (DU) authorities on Tuesday have expelled 63 students for life over question leakage and admission fraud.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the DU’s Disciplinary Council at 10:30 am. With this, the number of students expelled for life in the case of fraud has risen to 78. 

Earlier on June 23 last year, the CID filed a chargesheet against 125 people, including 87 students of the University, for question leakage and fraud in the Dhaka University admission test. 

Two chargesheets - Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act and the Public Examination Act - were filed where the DU authorities had expelled 15 people involved in the incident and the remaining were given the notice to show cause. 

The university authorities decided to expel 63 more people for life as the reply was not satisfactory. 

The decision was taken at a meeting where the Dhaka University’s question leakage and admission fraud was discussed, said Professor AKM Golam Rabbani, proctor of the university.     

On October 20, 2017, the CIS arrested two students — Mohiuddin Rana, co-secretary of Chhata League’s central commitee and Abdullah Al Mamun —  from Shahidullah Hall on the night before Dhaka University’s ‘Gha’ unit admission test. During this, they found an electronic device that looked like an ATM card, which communicated with the examinee during the test. 

The next day, the CID filed a case against them under Section 63 of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act and Section 9 (Kha) of the Public Examination Act of 1980 with Shahbagh Police Station.
