The probe team has been asked to submit a report in three days after which action would be taken in accordance with Anti-cheating Act and Patna High Court order, he said.

TV footages and still photographs showed women indulging in mass copying during examination in the college.

Many examinees were shown sitting in verandah and writing answers openly from books.

Principal of the Samastipur Womens College Meena Prasad has said that the college was forced to make sitting arrangements in verandah due to shortage of space in class rooms in view of large number of students appearing taking the test.

The event reminded of mass copying during matriculation examination at various centres in Bihar recently which had drawn national condemnation for the state.
