SC to hear plea on NEET paper leak today

New Delhi: Plea on alleged NEET paper leak is to be heard for seeking probe into alleged paper leak of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) phase 2.

It said that Uttarakhand Police arrested five people belonging to an inter-state racket on July 23, a day before the entrance exam.
The petition was mentioned by senior advocate Sanjay Hedge before a bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur which listed it for hearing tomorrow before the bench of Justice A R Dave.

NEET aspirant Anshul Sharma filed a plea before SC and has sought a status report into the alleged leakage of question papers which should be submitted before the court.

CBSE, which had rejected the claim of paper leak, had conduced the NEET Phase II examination on July 24 while NEET-I was held on May 1. The combined results of NEET-I and NEET-II will be declared on August 17.
CBSE had claimed that it was an attempt made by some unscrupulous elements to cheat the candidates on false promises.
