SRINAGAR: Answer-scripts in graduate-level examinations categorised as not received in the result gazette have been found to be lying uncollected at a police station in North Kashmir.
Pertaining to the Education (B) paper in the final-year examinations conducted by the Kashmir University last year, the answer scripts are still in the custody of the Sogam police in the frontier district of Kupwara, sources said.
Though varsity authorities had declared exam results within a record period of 20 days, a large number of students had been left aghast because their answer-sheets had not been delivered for evaluation.
The superintendent of the examination centre concerned, Ghulam Nabi Lone, said that he had deposited the answer scripts at the Sogam police station within half-an-hour of the examination closing.
But sources in the police said that no one had bothered to collect the packets from the police station later.
The controller of examinations at the Kashmir University, Abd-us-Salam Bhat, said that an inquiry would be conducted as to why the scripts had not been picked up from the police station, and that the students problems solved within two days.
