Mozammel Haque, dean of the faculty of arts and humanities, told reporters that every year they send question papers to the adjacent chemistry department for the center of the auditorium. The teachers collect the questions from there and then take the exam. However, this year it was decided to send the question paper to the Faculty of Sociology. But Auditorium Coordinator Tapas Kumar Das refused to bring question papers from the Faculty of Sociology after the third shift citing ‘security’. Due to this the fourth round exam started late.
