NEET Paper Leak: Delhi Connection Emerged After Maharashtra Arrests

neet

The investigation into the leak of the NEET UG exam paper has taken a new turn with the discovery of a possible connection to Delhi. This comes after authorities in Bihar and Maharashtra made arrests related to the case.

Bihar Police previously apprehended four individuals who admitted to leaking the question paper the night before the exam. The probe has now shifted its focus to “solver gangs” that allegedly sell leaked papers and provide proxy candidates for students seeking an unfair advantage.

In Maharashtra, a case has been filed against two school teachers from Latur, Sanjay Tukaram Jadhav and Jalil Umarkhan Pathan. The Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) suspects their involvement in the leak. One teacher is in custody, while the other remains at large. Incriminating evidence, including student admit cards and WhatsApp chats, was reportedly found on their phones.

The most recent development points towards a potential facilitator in Delhi. Investigators believe the Maharashtra teachers were in contact with a man in the national capital identified as Gangadhar. He is suspected of connecting them with students willing to pay exorbitant sums for access to the leaked paper.

The CBI took over the NEET paper leak probe, emphasizing its commitment to safeguarding student interests. Additionally, the government has enacted stringent measures to curb malpractices in competitive exams1.

This follows the government’s commitment to protecting the interests of students who took the exam fairly. The CBI is also investigating irregularities in the UGC-NET exam, including reports of papers being leaked and sold online.

The ongoing investigation aims to dismantle the entire network involved in the leak, from those who steal the question paper to those who facilitate access to students and potentially take the exam on their behalf. As investigations continue, authorities are determined to hold those responsible accountable. đź“°
