Taking serious note of the incident, MG University has sought a report from the Kalamasseri St. Paul’s College Principal. Jose will be debarred, if he is found guilty, university sources said.

However, Jose denied all allegations levelled against him and said, “Nobody has caught me for copying; no papers have been recovered from me. The examination began at 10 am, and I finished writing my paper at about 12 and I came out. Nobody has given me any report of copying.”
