Petition field in view of NEET II paper leak rumors
New Delhi- A fresh petition has been filed with the apex court, asking for re-examination of the NEET-II examination in view of the alleged paper leak that happened right before the day of the exam.
This came in light the of the arrests that were made by the Uttarakhand Police, just the night before the NEET exam was conducted.
CBSE had immediately issued a statement denying any leakage of the exam paper. “The material seized by the Uttarakhand police from persons involved in cheating was provided to CBSE and the same was matched by the board with the original question paper of NEET-II. It was found that the seized material is entirely different from the original question paper. This was an attempt made by some unscrupulous elements to cheat the candidates on false promises,” the board had said in a statement.
The Petitioner, NEET aspirant Anshul Sharma, while alluding to a similar situation that had occurred with the AIPMT 2015 exam, has appealed for a re-examination of NEET II exam this year based on the conduct of the police. Last year, when the AIPMT paper had leaked, CBSE had to re-conduct the exam within 4 weeks, as per directions of the court reports India Today.
