Scores of students appearing in the ongoing Matric examination conducted by Board of School Education Tuesday alleged that few teachers in league with higher ups are demanding money from the students to get through in the examinations.
Students told CNS that at Centre number 232 of Islamia Public School, Baghat Kanipora, a teacher (name withheld) has collected lakhs of rupees from the students.
“Those students who pay Rs 15,000 are being kept in a different class. With all the doors and windows closed, the teachers dictate them each and every question and even they use black-board for this purpose,” they said alleging that poor students who could not afford watch all this happening under their nose.
The students told CNS that so far the Board of School Education (BOSE) has conducted examinations of three papers including English, Social Science, and Mathematics and for all these papers affluent students paid a fixed sum to come off with flying colours in the examination.
“The teachers are doing all this with the consent of Superintendent. BOSE is acting as a mute spectator and ruining the career of poor students,” they said.
Terming these allegations baseless, the accused teacher told CNS that he is simply a teacher in the school and has nothing to do with all this. “If students are complaining, then they should the Superintendent of the Centre,” he said.
Superintendent of the Examination Centre vehemently denounced the allegations. “I don’t know anything about that. It is baseless,” he said.
When contacted, Chairman BOSE, Hardesh Kumar failed to answer the query and put down the phone.
