CBI unearths major NEET scam


Mumbai : Weeks after unearthing a JEE Mains exam racket where proxy candidates appeared in place of real ones for pecuniary considerations, the CBI has now blown the lid off a similar racket in NEET exams.

A Maharashtra-based coaching centre RK Education Career Guidance, its Director Parimal Kotpalliwar and several students have been charged in the scam, reports said, adding that candidates were charged as much as Rs 50 lakh assuring admission in government medical colleges.

The CBI probe further revealed that the parents of the medical aspirants were asked to deposit post-dated cheques of the agreed amount and original mark sheets of the candidate for Class 10 and Class 12 as security which the coaching centre would return after realising the agreed amount which is up to Rs 50 lakh.

The username and password of the candidates who applied for NEET was obtained to make necessary modifications to get desired examination centres. Copies of e-Aadhar of the candidates were taken for morphing photographs, reports added.

The CBI also identified certain candidates who had paid money to the firm for passing the exams.
