In a serious incident at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), 21 B.Tech students were suspended for allegedly using fraudulent means to secure admission into engineering courses. The case has been forwarded to the higher level authorities. Presently, these students are studying B. Tech at Zakir Husain College of Engineering and Technology.

According to Khursheed A. Khan,  a committee constituted by the vice chancellor to oversee admissions to B. Tech course for 2011-2012 revealed that 21 students committed forgery, cheating, misrepresented and concealed facts, produced forged documents, committed different acts of indiscipline and misconduct specified under AMU Students’ Conduct and Discipline Rules, 1985.

Also, earlier this year, a racket of forging documents for admissions had come to light. Due to this, the university had put in place a bio-metric system for establishing an identity check of more than 40,000 students who had appeared in this year’s admission test. After the racket was unveiled, the university authorities has decided to probe last year’s admissions for similar cases of cheating.
