CID to investigate on Bangalore University B.Ed exams malpractices

CID to probe B.Ed exams malpractices
The Karnataka government has officially ordered a Criminal Investigation Department (CID) investigate into the alleged B.Ed exams malpractices in teacher education colleges affiliated to Bangalore University (BU).


The government order dated April 15 asks the Cyber Crime Police (CCB), CID to invoke the Information Technology Act, 2000, and investigate into the allegation that some B.Ed colleges under Bangalore University had made unauthorized use of the university logo on various websites to attract students from outside Karnataka through ‘agents' with the promise of offering students B.Ed degrees without classes.

The first information report (FIR) was filed by the university on February 5 at the Jnana Bharathi police station. This comes at a time when the university has undertaken its own exercise, through expert committees, to inspect B.Ed colleges under the scanner for academic irregularities.

Bangalore University decided to postpone the First Semester B.Ed exams from April 24 to May 23 in view of the ongoing affiliation row concerning colleges with irregularities.

The decision has been taken as BU is in the process of constituting expert committees to inspect 55 teacher education colleges that have been recommended for disaffiliation by the BU Task Force in its November report.
