New Delhi, July 19

A day after busting a scam to rig NEET UG 2022 examination and arresting eight accused persons from Delhi and Haryana, sources in the CBI said the syndicate was offering confirmed seats in medical courses spanning four states.

The sources said in the interrogation of the arrested accused persons it has come to light that they were selling each confirmed medical seat in different colleges at a price ranging from Rs 20 lakh to Rs 25 lakh.

“ Of the total amount, Rs 5 to Rs 7 lakh was shared with the person, who impersonated the student and solved the NEET papers and the rest of the amount was shared among masterminds, middlemen and a few others,” said a source.

The sources said the syndicate was operating its racket in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Haryana besides Delhi.

The CBI had on Monday arrested the accused from Delhi – six of the eight solvers of question papers and the mastermind is one Sushil Ranjan from Safdarjung, who deputed solvers and received the payments.

The other arrested accused included Krishna Shankar Yogi, Sunny Ranjan, Nidhi, Jeepu Lal Raghunandan and Bharat Singh, as the CBI had registered an FIR against 11 accused persons for allegedly indulging in the exam fraud.

The NEET was conducted for admission to MBBS, BDS, BAMS, BSMS, BUMS, BHMS and other undergraduate medical courses in approved, recognised medical, dental, AYUSH and other colleges/deemed universities, as well as institutes like AIIMS and JIPMER.
