But the university has confirmed the development, saying the action was necessitated by the need to address grey areas and ensure justice and fairness.

He said: “There is nothing strange about the development, it has only confirmed the integrity of our institution and the fact that we have remained “a university of first choice and the nation’s pride.” We have limited spaces but everyone wants to study with us.So we should expect all sorts of efforts to drag us into the mud but the university management is determined to ensure fairness and justice at all times. “We are currently looking at all the issues and as soon as we are through with the verifications and corrections where necessary, the list will be released.”It would be recalled that the university had last week released the results of the first set of candidates it offered provisional admission which it regarded as merit list.
