Kozhikode: The Kozhikode medical college principal has issued show-cause notice to five people, including the course co-ordinator and heads of departments regarding the four-day long unauthorised stint of a class 12 girl in an MBBS classroom. A report has been sent to the medical director following a meeting chaired by the principal after receiving explanation in the matter.

Medical college vice principal Dr KG Sajith Kumar said that an internal investigation was conducted after finding out that the student’s name was not in the admission list.

Classes had started on November 15 for 170 students who got admission after the first allotment. The girl attended classes two weeks later, when the admissions after the second allotment was completed. There were 49 students in this batch. On November 29, when there was a rush of new students at the college, their names were added to the register without checking admit cards.

The allotment list was handed over to the course co-ordinator the previous day, but the course-incharges were not informed about this.

After entering names of students in the register, the teacher asked if anyone had been left out and the girl said her name was not added. Head of the department said that the attendance of the girl was marked in this register in the following days. The biochemistry department runs the course.

State Health Minister Veena George has ordered an investigation into the matter.

The student has been identified as a 19-year-old girl from Koduvally. The girl appeared before the police and was later released on the bail of her parents. ACP K Sudarsan said that they are investigating if the girl produced any fake documents.

The girl said that she was in Goa when the NEET exam results were published. Due to the unavailability of a laptop, she checked the result on her phone. The girl who is ranked 15,000 in the list thought she had received admission after which her relatives and friends spread it on social media. But once she came home, the girl found that she had not received admission. The student told police that she went to the college and posted pictures on social media to avoid embarrassment.
