Kolkata: At least 10 students were suspended for writing love, poems, Hindi and Bengali songs in their semester exams in West Bengal.
The students were from Balgurghat Law College in Malda, affiliated to the University of Gour Ganga.
Sanatan Das, Controller of Examinations (Additional Charge) told IANS âA fact finding committee was formed to probe this and the guilty have been suspended for two years. He also added the students appeared for their third semester. They could have written wrong answers but they chose to write slang, abuses and things about love, including lines from Hindi and Bengali film songsâ.
One of the student had penned "Tu shayar hai, main teri shayari" while the other lamented how his girlfriend refused to listen to him.
"Usually the suspension duration is one year in case of disciplinary action but what they have done is extremely objectionable and defeats the purpose of examinations, we extended it by a year.
"This is sheer nonsense. They can take readmission in the same course at the end of two years and appear again," Das said.
He said the results of the examination that took place last year were published in January 2017.
"Out of around 150 students, only 40 passed the exams and when the results were declared they vandalised college premises. Not only did they write nonsense to kill time, they also resorted to violence which is totally unacceptable," he said.
