Lahore : The University of Health Sciences (UHS) has condemned a malicious campaign on social media from some hidden elements with regards to the Medical & Dental Colleges’ Admission Test (MDCAT), 2017, held on Sunday, and asked Cyber Crime Wing of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to act against those spreading rumours of paper leakage.
In a press release issued on Monday, UHS spokesman news of paper leakage is baseless and it is being spread on social media to malign an institution which is known for its valid, reliable and secure systems.
“The fact is that some mischievous elements, after the conclusion of the test on Sunday, retyped and hand-drew a few questions and diagrams of Physics section of the paper and posted those at exactly 04:28 pm on a fake Facebook account named ‘Ya mbbs ha mamu’.
The admin of the account gave an impression as if the paper was leaked before the test which is absolutely incorrect. The test concluded at 12:00 noon that day whereas the questions were uploaded after more than four hours”, he added.
The spokesman said that the objective of the post was to create unrest among the candidates and incite them against the university and the government.
He further said that UHS Vice Chancellor, Prof Dr Junaid Sarfraz Khan, had written to FIA Cyber Crime Wing to thoroughly investigate the matter and brought all those to justice who were involved in this conspiracy.
The UHS spokesman said that involvement of commercial tuition academies cannot be ruled out.
The spokesman advised the candidates not to lend an ear to these rumour mongers and reject all such concocted stories. UHS would not compromise on its principles of justice, merit, equity and transparency, he concluded.
