FIR against 27 for seeking admission at AMU using unfair means

Saturday July 14, 2012 09:49:53 PM, Hena Farhat,

Mumbai: The Aligarh Muslim University has lodged an FIR with the Civil Lines Police Station against twenty seven candidates seeking admission to B. Tech. Course at the Zakir Husain College of Engineering and Technology using unfair means/impersonating the actual candidates, a varsity official said Saturday.

"The Proctor’s office has provided all the relevant information about the candidates’ name and their addresses to the police for stern action", the official quoted AMU Proctor, Dr. Khursheed A. Khan as saying.

The twenty seven cases of impersonation were detected while identifying the candidates by using ‘biometric system’ at the time of admission. Using this technology, the University authorities were able to detect any discrepancy in the photographs and thumb impressions of the applicants who appeared in the admission test and those who were later found seeking admission.

The Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University, Lt. General (Retired) Zameer Uddin Shah also declared that the University was taking this matter ‘very seriously’.


He said that the University would pursue the cases with the police so as to set an example for the future.

Prof. Hamid Ali, Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Technology said that the Committee constituted by the Vice Chancellor to this effect, decided to deny admission to these candidates for using unfair means in the admission test for B. Tech. course in the Faculty of Engineering and Technology.

More than 42 thousand applicants had appeared in admission test held on May 20, 2012 at Aligarh, Lucknow, Kolkata, Bhopal, Hyderabad, Kozhikode and Srinagar.


The University finally admits 292 students in Engineering College.
