New Delhi: The Delhi Police has launched an investigation into claims that Delhi University’s admission process was compromised.
According to a tip-off, the university’s website was hacked to fraudulently secure admission.
Meanwhile, the police announced that these accusations have not been confirmed and that the investigation is intended only to clarify suspicions.
However, DU authorities said that three or four candidates tried to secure admission by changing their marks. The university canceled their admission because the data submitted by the students did not match the marks of the agency conducting the exam.
Enrollment in postgraduate studies at DU is based on a common university entrance exam. After the first round of distribution, about 59,100 candidates secured admission.
DU authorities said that each student’s documents were thoroughly checked before the admission process was completed.
