BHOPAL: The STF of state police, on Monday, arrested Prof Kalika adav, centre in- charge of Bachelor of Dental Surgery examination in Barkatullah University in fraud case, and sent him to jail till February 20. Prof adav is reported to be a big catch in the BDS scam in which several dental students had their copies written outside the examination centre with the help of a well- operated racket, and now STF sources said two officials of the university including registrar Dr Sanjay Tiwari could face action.
Outside the local court, Prof adav said he is innocent and former registrar Dr Sanjay Tiwari and vicechancellor Dr Nisha Dube changed the examination centre from government Ayurveda College to school of studies of distance education, where he was in- charge even as they knew that racket was involved in exam. Both should be arrested, he said. adav was suspended by the university administration for his failure in maintaining record of answer copies. Several BDS students of private
colleges, professors, university staffers have been arrested so far in the case. The STF on Monday summoned Prof adav for his statement for the second time. He was arrested and produced before chief judicial magistrate.
An enquiry by a judge into the BDS case, has found the then registrar and vice- chancellor responsible for failure in maintaining record of answer copies and keeping a check of fraud. The varsity vice- chancellor Dr Dube did not coordinate with officials and exam centre was changed with her approval.
