Six people, including four admission seekers, were arrested yesterday for cheating in the written admission tests of Jahangirnagar University (JU).
Of them, Ashrafuzzaman Nayon, Mahmudur Rashid Sowrav, Naimur Rahman, and Nishad Ahmed were caught as their handwritings and signatures did not match with the ones that they gave during the written tests, meaning that someone else had taken the tests for them, said JU Proctor Prof Tapan Kumar Saha.
The other two are Naimur Sarkar, elder brother of Nishad, and his friend Md Rizwan. All the six were handed over to Ashulia police.
Of the arrestees, only Rizwan claimed that he was not involved in any sort of cheating in the test and he was just accompanying Naimur outside the verbal exam centre yesterday.
The two brothers admitted that they made a deal of Tk 3 lakh with one who arranged the proxy for Nishad. But, they did not reveal the name, the proctor added.
Naimur is a college student in Nilphamari and is involved with Chhatra Dal, said sources quoting him.
Nayon and Sowrav made deals of Tk 3 and 5 lakh with one Subir, he added. A case was filed.
