According to sources, Professor Anees, who has been teaching as a guest faculty at Vikram University for the last 13 years, said, “I cannot intentionally give bad grades to any student, including Ojas Gupta, because examiners come from outside and take viva. When it comes to checking papers, being a guest faculty, I cannot check the papers and they go for evaluation outside the university moreover, if a student does not come to class for six months, how can you give them good grades?”
