DU student of public administration department Jannatul Mehjabin was detained while taking the test in a different room. Due to her refusal to assist with the authorities after her detention, she was given a two-year sentence. Jannatul is from Burichang in Cumilla.
The other individual is Bayezid Khan, a former RU folklore department student.
Invigilators in several rooms nabbed them when it was discovered that they were taking the test on behalf of others, said Prof. Pradip Kumar Panday, administrator of RU’s public relations office.
A mobile court later imposed a prison sentence on them. It was day two of the entrance exams for RU.
