On the eve of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) exam to be conducted at New Delhi, five persons belonging to a gang including a government employee were caught from Delhi and Jaipur for cheating medical candidates to provide them with question papers appearing for the NEET.
According to various sources, the ATS team in Delhi caught Ashok Gupta and Rahul while the Jaipur team detained Vikram Sinha, Vikas Sinha and Bhupendra Sharma. Bhupendra Sharma, who is a government employee, is a livestock assistant in the state animal husbandry department.
All five caught have been placed under arrest for cheating under various IPC sections including 420 (cheating), 468 (Forgery for purpose of cheating) among others and will be produced in a court today.
This gang had apparently promised certain students with the NEET question paper one day before the exam. It was reported that amongst the gang was a government employee as well. Each paper was to be sold for Rs 5 Lakh each to these students.
However, the question paper that was provided to the students did not match the actual NEET paper. Therefore one cannot say the that paper was leaked.
