The Board of Professional Entrance Examinations (BOPEE) has cancelled the admission of 12 students of Government Medical College, Srinagar, for their alleged involvement in the MBBS paper leak scam in 2012.
The Jammu and Kashmir high court on February 6 had directed the board to take action against candidates who used unfair means to crack the CET-2012, and select meritorious candidates in their place without any further delay.
The board, in its latest report, has confirmed the admissions have been cancelled.
"We have sent admission cancellation notices to the students after getting directions from the board," said DR Rafiq Ahmed Pampori, principal of the medical college.
"As winter vacations are on in the Valley, we were not able to contact these students. So, we sent cancellation notices by post," Pampori added.
The candidates whose admissions have been cancelled are Mushtaq Ahmad Lone, Yasir Yusuf Dar, Shafeequr Rehman Lone, Khursheed Ahmad Dar, Navid Ahmad Bhat, Yasir Yusuf Hajam, Bazila Bilal Vaid, Amira Shakeel, Saiqa Manzoor, Ahmad Faraz, Shahida Shafi and Sadam Farooq Shah.
