Teacher suspended for texting exam paper to students


A paper leak racket was busted at Gujarat Technological University (GTU) in Gandhinagar, Ahmedabad. The teacher, Ankit Mehta, who was deputed as an exam observer was caught sending a question and its answer to four students and a teacher by SMS just before the exam was to commence. All exam observers at GTU are given a password to unlock the online question paper section of the GTU website 40 minutes before the test begins. Once Mehta, who is a teacher at Alpha Engineering College, Ahmedabad, got hold of the password, he passed it on to the college principal and also accessed the question paper and sent text messages to four students and a teacher. It came to be known that these four students take tuitions from Mehta. It was only after the principal of GTU snatched Mehta’s phone that he was busted sending out a question worth six marks that led to his suspension .
