A College in Karnataka attempted a ridiculous method to make students refrain from malpractices in the examination. Administration of the Bhagat PU College used customised cartons to cover the heads of the students so that they can't look anywhere else except what's in front of them.
This bizarre idea was that of College Administrator Satish who decided to implement it at any cost taking inspiration from the practice followed in a Bihar College. However, Deputy Director of Pre-University Education SC Peerzade rushed to the college soon after he came to know about the experiment and stopped the practice. A show cause notice was issued to the College Management for following such a method to prevent malpractice.
Photographs of the Students in the examination hall wearing cardboard boxes went viral on the internet. There was a huge backlash from all over the country over the weird attempt. Finally, Bhagat PU College issued an apology for the inconvenience caused to the students.
