TEN Mulungushi University students who were picked up by police last week in connection with forging of deposits slips for tuition fees have been charged and released on bond.
But the search for two students suspected to be masterminds of the scam who escaped a police dragnet during a raid, has continued.
Central Province Police Chief Lombe Kamukoshi said the 10 students, comprising four females and six males, were released on bond but said a search for other students would continue.
The 10 students were alleged to have tampered with figures on the deposit slips after depositing tuition fees into the Mulungushi University bank account.
At the weekend, university management said some students may not be allowed to write their examinations scheduled for this week if the institution establishes that they had not paid the correct school tuition fees.
University management said it was working round the clock to ensure that any student found to have cheated by not paying the required amount, would not sit for examinations.
Acting Mulungushi University chancellor Judith Lungu said in an interview, however, that it was not the intention of university to unfairly stop any student from writing the examinations but was of the view that any wrong doing must be treated as such.
