Real-Life ‘Munnabhai MBBS’: Seats Sold For Rs 20 Lakh In NEET Medical Exam

New Delhi:  Expert paper solvers impersonated students and wrote answer sheets in exchange for money in the NEET medical exam held on July 17.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday, busted a multi-state racket offering “confirmed” seats in medical courses with the arrest of eight people. The cheating operation spread across Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Haryana, NDTV reported quoted CBI sources.

Out of the total cost of Rs 20 lakh per seat, Rs 5 lakh went to the person who impersonated the student and solved the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) question paper, said sources in the agency. The rest is shared by the middlemen and others.

On Monday, the agency made the arrests from Delhi, six of the eight solved NEET papers. The mastermind is a person called Sushil Ranjan from Safdarjung, who deputed “paper solvers” and accepted payments. Eleven people were named in the case and the hunt is on for the rest, the report added.

The agency will now speak to candidates. The role of coaching institutions in this will also come under the scanner, NDTV reported quoting officials.

Despite tight security, this racket managed to tweak NEET ID cards using morphed photographs so paper solvers could gain entrance into the exam hall. The accused also collected user IDs and passwords of the candidates and made necessary changes to get to the desired examination centres.
