Scores of students of KITE Polytechnique College Rangreth Thursday staged protest here against Technical Board for announcing poor results. Raising anti-board slogans, the protestors demanded rechecking, revaluation of their paper and announcement of new results. The students while talking to KNS said, “Yesterday Board announced results for 2nd and 3rd semester wherein only three percent students have been declared qualified. Students who have been toppers in earlier exams have been put under the category of failures.” The students said that last month when the Board similarly announced poor results, a fellow student Adnan couldn’t bear the news and committed to suicide. It later turned out after rechecking that Adnan has actually scored first. “Today they are doing the same thing again. We demand overhaul of the Board and accountability of those who are assigned to check our answer sheets,” protesters said. “The present Board officials and paper checkers have proven themselves murders who forced our colleague Adnan to commit suicide,” they alleged. They also demanded that their answer sheets should be provided to them along with name and contact numbers of paper checker. “Let the Board be transparent. We want to tell it (Board authorities) please don’t commit blunders repeatedly to force the students to meet fate of Adnan,” they said.
