In a fresh twist to the Vyapam scam, now the name of former Vyapam exam controller Sudhir Singh Bhadoria’s daughter has emerged in the multi-layered recruitment scandal.
The special task force (STF), which was probing into the scam earlier, had found evidence that three candidates, including Meghana Bhadoria, used unfair means in the pre-engineering tests (PET), conducted in 2012 and 2013.
In a question document analysis report submitted to the Vyapam in July, the STF had pointed out that they had found evidence that separate inks were used by the candidates to write the examination.
Based on the report, Vyapam will now issue notices to the three students under the Unfair Means Rules, a source in the Vyapam said.
According to the source, the Vyapam had constituted a three-member committee after receiving the question document analysis report, which found that the two inks were used by students. The second ink used to mark answers has 100% correct answers on the basis of model answer key.
The three students who would be issued notices, include Meghana for PET-2013, Shreya Bhargava for PET-2012 and Vikalp Nayak for PET-2012. No evidence was found against the fourth student.
Sources added that if the explanation of the three candidates was not found satisfactory, their admissions would be cancelled.
It is, however, not clear whether the STF would proceed with legal action against the three students concerned as they had done with other accused of irregularities in the PMT and other recruitment tests conducted by the Vyapam.
