In a massive setback to the online examination by Savitribai Phule Pune University, a critical turn to the entire scenario is reported, as a student, who visited the university to complaint about technical error in saving his answer sheet by the portal, has alleged that he was beaten and tortured by the security guards for almost an hour when he tried to shoot a video of SPPU Director of Exam Controller, Mahesh Kakde.

It was reported by the student, Aditya Tangade Patil that when he visited the university, he was asked to wait without any reason. And when he sensed that the authorities are misbehaving while talking to the parents of the students, who were there to complaint about similar scenario of getting zero marks in exam – which the student claimed that it is impossible – the authorities spoke rudely with the parents.

When Aditya tried to shoot the entire scenario, he was caught and beaten by the security guards in the premises of SPPU. Thereafter, he was tortured for an hour. The technicians of SPPU even scanned his entire phone without his consent to erase the video and entire history.

He said, “The security guards even asked me to do sit ups while slapping me often. This all happened on the occassion of constitution day. In fact, when I requested the exam controller board to cross check my answers submitted, they said that my data isn’t saved even when I had submitted the answer sheet only after I received “Submitted” notification by the portal. I have taken education loan for my further Masters program, which is under process with regular online lectures. The authorities have simply said that appear for a backlog examination. Why should I ehen I have attempted the questions hundred percent. How can SPPU even ask me to sit for backlog when they have no data of my attempted answer sheet, while I was present for the examination. Shocking!!”

As informed by Aditya, the authorities even warned him of spoiling his career if he tries to reach out to the news reporters.

Upon reaching out to Mahesh Kakde, he said, “This all is scripted and fictitious. How can we treat our students this way? But how can we tolerate him shooting footage in a restricted zone? In a place where we carry exam duties, how can we just allow anyone to even take videos? In consultation with our Vice Chancellor, Nitin Karmalkar, we will take legal action against the student for trying to spoil the image of the university after getting a support from third parties outside.”
