Neeraj, the victim, apparently could not sit in the exam on Saturday and set himself ablaze in his house last night in Sikohabad area, police said.

He succumbed to injuries at Saifai medical college and hospital this morning, District Superintendent of Police Rakesh Singh said adding that they have booked the Centre in charge Vivek Yadav on the charges of abetting suicide and allowing copying.

Neeraj, whose examination centre was Evram Singh higher secondary school in Nagla Khati village under Eka police station area, had been allegedly told by Yadav that he "has taken contract for getting all the examinees appearing there passed and so he should not write anything in the answer books," the SP said.

Yadav had allegedly been demanding money from Neeraj on phone and threatened him that he would be barred from appearing in the exam if he failed to pay the money, the SP said.

Efforts were on to nab Yadav, he said.
