A probe committee appointed by the MG University here on Tuesday confirmed that Inspector General of Police T.J.Jose had indulged in copying while appearing in the masters in (LLM) examination in May.

Jose was caught cheating in exams at his centre at the St.Paul's College Kalamassery near Kochi. Following a huge media outcry, he was asked to proceed on leave and a Crime Branch police probe was also announced then.

The MG varsity syndicate probe committee members told the media here that Jose indulged in copying as per the University rules as he was found with papers and he did not surrender these to the invigilator.

The report was handed over to the Pro Vice Chancellor Sheena Shukoor and in the coming days, the vice chancellor will discuss the report with the syndicate and appropriate action would be announced.

Jose was caught cheating in the exam on May 4 and the invigilator, an hour into the examination, asked Jose to leave the hall as he was found copying from papers that he brought with him.
