Micro-containment tag removed from VSSUT hostels after testing kits were found faulty
Alternate dates of the examinations that were postponed amid the confusion are yet to be finalised
A day after it came to fore that the 25 engineering students of Veer Surendra Sai University of Technology (VSSUT) had tested positive for Covid-19 due to faulty rapid antigen kits, the authorities on Wednesday lifted the micro-containment zone tag from the hostels. However, amid the confusion, the authorities postponed another examination of final year students of the institution, scheduled to be held on the day. Earlier, the university authorities had postponed the examination of final year students, which was scheduled to be held on March 1. Vice-Chancellor in-charge of VSSUT, BB Pati said the alternate dates for the postponed examinations, are yet to be finalized. We have not taken a decision also on the two examinations of the final year students, which are scheduled to be held on March 7 and March 14, he added.
