Chennai: More than 50 students of Anna University are being quizzed in the marks-for-cash scam that was busted by the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption recently.
The former controller of examination, G V Uma was booked along with nine other professors and examiners for awarding marks in exchange for money during revaluation in 2017.
The scam came to light Wednesday and the DVAC quickly moved in on the suspects.
According to reports, 16,636 students benefited through the revaluation work.
The DVAC, questioning the students, said doubts were raised after a student who got 24 marks originally, secured 94 marks after revaluation.
The anti-corruption body found that Rs 10,000 had been paid for each paper that had to be re-valued.
But, speaking to a morning paper yesterday, Prof Uma claimed that she had been framed in the case as she had been trying to bring about reforms in the examination system.
