However, when they went to get their mark sheets, it was found that they had passed, he said.

The two came to know of their original results on August 20 when they approached the MU authorities for their mark sheets, he said.

Speaking to media persons, S Amarjit Said that their last semester BA examination was held in the last week of May and the result was declared on July 19 by the college.

We found both our results remarks as “yet to pass”, which the college authorities cited to be because of their 4th semester back papers, he said. The results of the back papers was declared on July 25 during which we found our results remarks as ‘withheld’, he continued and added that the college authorities claimed the result remarks to be because of the unfinished checking of Sociology paper.

On July 29, the results were pasted on the Manipur University notice board and the names of the two were found missing from the pass list, but when they went to collect their mark sheets from the University on August 20, both were found to have passed, he claimed.
