Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Friday directed the Board of Professional Entrance Examinations (BOPEE) to cancel the admission of 22 candidates, who fraudulently got admission during 2012 common entrance test (CET).
The court also directed the crime branch to extend probe to the medical entrance exams taken in 2009, 2010 and 2011 as well.
A division bench of the High Court, comprising of justice Hasnain Masoodi and Ali Mohammad Magrey, remarked that the "pace of investigation has slowed down after filing the chargesheet".
The court asked the BOPEE to cancel the admissions of candidates and select the meritorious candidate in their place without delay.
The court said that the initial enthusiasm and alertness shown by the crime branch, which was appreciated by the court, had started waning.
The court added that the investigating agency has to realise that speedy, fair and objective investigation should be made to help restore confidence of the aspirants in BOPEE and other such institutions.
The High Court directed the crime branch to investigate the case beyond these candidates.
