Dixit said one of the students was taking the General Medicine exam on Monday, February 21, 2022, along with 13 others when external supervisors came unannounced and they found one student with a mobile phone and another with a Bluetooth device.

Dixit said that the students had intentionally hidden those devices because they were asked to submit all electronics gadgets in their possession to the invigilators.

After concluding the investigation, it would be known if the case can be transferred to the police for using unfair means in an exam, says the deputy registrar, Rachna Thakur was with the external invigilators.
