Kolkata: The West Bengal government will take “exemplary” action against anyone found to be involved in irregularities in admission to under-graduate courses, higher education minister Partha Chatterjee said on Saturday.

Mr Chatterjee said that the education department would call college principals to a meeting next week to discuss a host of issues, including admission-related matters.

Asked about media reports regarding some leaders of the ruling Trinamul Congress’ student wing being allegedly involved in malpractices in college admission, he said, “If such an allegation against any leader is found to be true, exemplary action will be taken against that person.”

The minister has also asked students and guardians to directly lodge a complaint with the police, if they were approached by anyone offering help in the admission process in exchange for money.

“File a complaint with the police, we will initiate action. Also send copies of the complaint to the Chief

Minister’s Office (CMO),” he added. The Kolkata Police posted a message on its Facebook page, urging people

Hours after Chatterjee’s comments, the Kolkata Police posted a message on its Facebook page, urging anyone who is asked to pay money for college admission to inform the cops.

“Please mail us with these details along with your own address and phone number to KolkataPolice120@gmail.Com mail id or two WhatsApp numbers — 8420758994/6290961121. We will protect your identity,” the message in Bengali said.
