In a tragic incident a student appearing for Secondary School Certificate (Class 10) examination died due to heart attack while writing the exam at a centre in Vidyodaya College on Monday.
The parents of the deceased student, as well as the public, are slamming the ‘negligent’ and ‘inhuman’ attitude of the invigilator for taking back her answer sheet one hour after the exam started, and for asking her to go to another examination centre to write her paper afresh.
This incident has triggered a debate in Karnataka over the ‘inhuman’ and ‘negligent’ approach of the invigilator and authorities of the education department.
The incident occured at T. Narasipur town in Mysuru district on Monday when Anushree was writing the exam at a centre in Vidyodaya College.
Anushree, a student of Madapura High School, collapsed while rushing towards another examination centre on Monday.
It has come to light that the tensed student had gone to the wrong examination centre. The invigilator had given her an answer sheet without checking her hall ticket. When she was half way through the exam, the invigilator realised that she had come to the wrong centre and took back her back answer sheet and question paper.
The student was asked to rush to another centre located 100 metres away.
Anushree’s has demanded a probe into the incident.
