The Yerawada police have registered a criminal offence against a coaching centre and its teachers in connection with an incident in which 41 students from a college in Yerawada had missed their HSC geography paper after wrong timetable was printed on an advertisement pamphlet distributed by a private coaching class in the college.
It may be recalled that 41 students of Netaji Subhashchandra Bose college had missed their geography paper as they followed a wrong timetable printed on pamphlets distributed by representatives of Bhujbal Classes in Yerawada after a career guidance programme held in the college few days before the exam.
Some of the students reached the exam centres on March 10 at 3 pm only to be told the paper was already over. The distributed timetable had mentioned the timing to be 3 pm to 6 pm but the exam had got over between 11 am and 2 pm. The parents of the 41 students later approached Yerawada police.

Senior inspector S A Patil of Yerawada police station said, “We conducted an preliminary inquiry before registering an offence. Though the coaching centre’s representatives had taken permission from the college to hold the programme, they did not take permission to distribute the pamphlets. Thus, both the coaching centre and the some of the teachers are responsible for the loss of the students.”
“We have booked them for criminal trespass and mischief leading to loss for the students. We are yet to identify the individuals from Bhujbal classes and those from the school. The names would come to fore after further probe.”
