Faridkot, October 15

Two days after allegations surfaced that the question paper for recruitment of medical officers (dental) had leaked in the state Health Department, the Baba Farid University of Health Sciences (BFUHS) announced that it would cancel the test.

The test would be conducted on October 22, and new admit cards would be uploaded on the university’s website, said Registrar of the university.

The university had conducted the test on October 11 for 1,017 posts of medical officers (general and dental) and pharmacy officers. For the same, about 11,000 aspirants had appeared for 500 posts of medical officers (general), 35 posts of medical officers (dental) and 482 posts of pharmacists.

It was alleged that one of the candidates had allegedly sent the question paper for the post of medical officer (dental) via WhatsApp. Subsequently, the university lodged a complaint against the candidate with the Tarn Taran police. Besides, the said aspirant could score only 0.5 marks out of 90 in the test.

The university had approached the state government and suggested cancelling the exam as the police investigation will take some time.

Subsequently, the approval to cancel the test was granted and the university announced a new date for examination.

While the university had withheld the result of medical officer (dental) test, it has declared the result of the medical officer (general) and pharmacists.
