" to take the examinations only in sandals or chappals," said a source.
The Patna University administration had already banned the cellphones & other electronic gadgets inside the exam halls. The examinees had to give an undertaking that they would be expelled from the university if they were found using unfair means in the examinations. A few years ago, Mr. Simhadri had hired the services of the sniffer dogs to check the unfair means in Patna University exams.
Meanwhile, 4 examinees were expelled at the B N College centre for using unfair means in the Degree Part-I (honors) examination in science, commerce and arts.
