    Why not, in the future, install metal detectors, like in the airport, at every examination centre.

    There should't be any investigation, first of all using the mobile phone is already prohibited in the exam. The student should be punished.

    At least one sri lankan is thinking right. Girigoris you are absolutely correct. anyway what were the officials doing allowing students to carry their cell phones to the examination hall.

    Are we not sick of this word 'PROBE'? Everything and anything is being probed these days but we never see or hear of the results of these probes!

    That is not the point here! It has to do with honesty and integrity.
