2 SF MCs asked to submit affidavits
Kochi: The High Court of Kerala on Thursday has asked Kannur Medical College and Karuna Medical College to file affidavits on MBBS admission on 19 October 2016. The direction came when the Commissioner for Entrance Examinations submitted its report after the spot admission held at Thiruvananthapuram on 7 October 2016.
In the report, the CEE submitted that 'Even at 7 pm in the evening, the officials of Karuna Medical College were not able to furnish the documents relating to the admission of students in the college. The officials of the college tried to delay the process by giving misleading information and by not co-operating with the process.' The category-wise split-up of candidates admitted by the college was found not matching the actual seat matrix, the CEE added.
A total of 30 candidates who got admission due to the flawed admission procedure and other connected irregularities committed by the Karuna Medical College have lost their admission as a result of the Spot admission conducted by the Commissioner for Entrance Examinations. Instead, another 30 candidates were selected and that list was handed over to the Director of Medical Education for favour of further necessary action as the college authorities did not co-operate with the admission process. The CEE wanted the HC to approve the list of 100 candidates submitted by the CEE after the spot admission.
On documents submitted by Kannur Medical College, the CEE said, the list of total applications and the category-wise Merit list did not contain the most important information viz, the NEET rank and Roll number of the candidates. Hence, the CEE submitted to the Kerala HC to uphold the order of cancellation of the entire MBBS admissions made by the Kannur Medical College, Anjarakkandy, Kannur for the year 2016-17 and the eligible candidates may be admitted in accordance with the merit shown in the NEET rank list.
