Saifur Rahman Shamim, Kurigram –
A 5th class student of Phulbari Upazila of Kurigram got a scholarship in general grade despite being absent in the examination.  When the results of the scholarship examination were released on Monday, the student’s roll was found in the published list of Phulbari upazila.  The student’s name is Sajib Ali.  His roll number is 24.  He was a student of Char Gorakmandal Government Primary School.  But he did not participate in the scholarship examination.  A storm of discussion and criticism has started in the classroom.
According to Education Office sources, 665 students from 161 government primary schools participated in the scholarship examination held in Phulbari upazila on December 30.  Student Sajib Ali in Roll No. 24 of Room 101 of Phulbari Degree College Center did not participate in the examination.  As a result, the concerned authorities sent the list to the district showing the student as absent.
Meanwhile, on Monday, when the results of the scholarship examination came out, a copy of the scholarship list of 44 Taltepul and 37 general grade students came to the education office in Phulbari Upazila.  The parents of the examinee and the heads of the institution can find out the roll number of that student.  On this news, the parents and students started rioting.  Student Sajib Ali’s house is the younger son of Huzur Ali and his mother Chakina Begum in Chargorkommand area of ​​Naodanga Union of Phulbari Upazila.
When the student went to Sajib Ali’s house on Tuesday afternoon, he said, “I did not give the exam.”  How I got the scholarship seems completely ridiculous.
In this regard, Shafiqul Islam Alam, head teacher of Char-Gorkamandal Government Primary School, said that 7 candidates have been included in descriptive roll (DR).  Three of them were absent.  Among them, Sajib Ali was also absent.  How Sajib cleared the scholarship exam despite his absence only the authorities can tell.
Phulbari Upazila Assistant Education Officer and the officer in charge of the cluster of that institution Asafuzzaman said that he heard the matter.  Later the head of the institution was contacted.  He said the student did not take the exam.  How his roll number is listed will be monitored.
Kurigram District Education Officer Shahidul Islam said that if the list sent to the upazila level is missing, the matter will be looked into.  In this regard, Phulbari Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Suman Das said, I have already learned about the matter and the investigation is ongoing after reviewing all the documents seriously.  Further action will be taken after the investigation.
It should be noted that the primary education department has suspended the primary scholarship results four hours after publication.  The results were declared at 1 pm on Tuesday.  Later, at 5:30 PM, the Directorate of Primary Education sent an e-mail to all DPEOs (District Primary Education Officers) saying that the revised results will be out in a few days.  The declared result has been postponed.
