New Delhi: About 500 candidates were involved in leaking the National Eligibility-Cum-Entrance Test (NEET) paper for post-graduate medical courses using special software at six exam centers, Dr. Anand Rai, whistleblower in the Madhya Pradesh medical admissions scam (Vyapam scam) alleged on Sunday.
Dr Rai also alleged that most of them cracked the test held in November 2016 using unfair means and got recruited at prominent hospitals.
“Share-in software was used to leak the paper,” Dr Rai has been quoted as saying by The Hindu.
Recently, Delhi Police Crime Branch filed a charge sheet in the case involving Prometric Testing Pvt Ltd, which was hired by the National Board of Examinations to conduct the NEET online.
Dr Rai said that the police had in the past six months investigated only two centres in Noida and Chandigarh, but no action was taken against those involved in the destruction of evidence, according to another report in the media.
"This investigation is a mockery. The truth is that these candidates were allowed to take admission and now they are serving in important hospitals across the country. I have, therefore, decided to approach the Delhi High Court for a CBI inquiry," he said.
He also said that he had identified six centers located in Delhi, Noida, Chandigarh, Lucknow, Bhubaneswar and Ranchi 'where, he alleged, candidates had used fraudulent means.
Unsatisfied with the police probe and inaction, Dr Rai has now decided to move to Delhi High Court seeking a CBI prone into the entire case.
About one lakh candidates had appeared in the examination held in November 2016.
