Nearly 200 blank answer scripts of the ongoing Bangalore University undergraduate exams have been stolen from a north Bengaluru college. The answer scripts had been kept in the cupboard of the locked staff room of Sambhram Academy of Management Studies (SAMS), MS Palya, Jalahalli East, Vidyaranyapura, on April 25. The staff found the room door ajar around 8.15am on April 27. However, the fact that 173 answer scripts were missing was noticed only around 4pm. In their complaint to Vidyaranyapura police, the college authorities said some students or outsiders may have entered the staff room by breaking the window pane. A senior BU official said the answer scripts could be filled up and slipped into bundles of legitimate answer-sheets when they are dispatched to BU after the exam. B Thimme Gowda, vice-chancellor of BU, has directed KN Ninge Gowda, registrar (evaluation), to file a police complaint against SAMS. The vice-chancellor confirmed the directive to BU.
