NEET Phase II Paper Leak Row: SC To Hear Plea On Alleged NEET Paper Leak Today
After the NEET aspirant Anshul Sharma filed a petition demanding re-test of NEET Phase II examination, Supreme Court will be hearing the plea in this regard.
The Supreme Court has today refused to interfere in the plea seeking probe by the Uttarakhand Police into alleged paper leak of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) phase 2. The petition was mentioned by senior advocate Sanjay Hedge. However, the Court has granted permission to the petitioner to approach the Uttarakhand High Court.
“We have withdrawn the petition. The Supreme Court has granted us liberty to appeal to the Uttarakhand High Court. We have not decided whether we’ll go there or not,” said Vaibhav Srivastava.
Some media reports said the NEET 2 question paper had been leaked in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand where around 44,000 students appeared for the exam.
The CBSE has already denied any paper leak and has said they had matched the original question paper of NEET 2 and found that the seized material is entirely different from the original question paper of the entrance test.
Details of the case:
- NEET aspirant Anshul Sharma filled the petition and said that the primary investigations carried out by the Uttarakhand police points out that five persons (one from Delhi and four from Bihar) belonging to an inter-state racket were arrested on July 23, a day before the entrance exam
- Not only this, Sharma also mentioned Tanvi Sarwal’s case, where the apex court ordered the board to re-conduct All India Pre-Medical / Pre-Dental Entrance Test (AIPMT which is now NEET) 2015 when allegations surfaced regarding leakage of the paper in Haryana
- That time as well, the CBSE denied the report on the basis of the investigation report by the police. The court ordered for a re-examination of AIPMT 2015 within a period of four weeks, he added.
- As per reports, the petition was mentioned by senior advocate Sanjay Hedge before a bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur
The plea, according to Hegde, relies on a press conference by a district senior superintendent of police in Uttarakhand, who claimed that a syndicate had leaked questions, which were shared on messaging platform WhatsApp. The petitioner has asked for a status report on the investigation to be filed with the court.
Hegde said the CBSE had similarly denied any foul play in the 2015 All India Pre-Medical Test. However, after four status reports, evidence to the contrary surfaced and the examination had to be re-conducted.
