An AIIMS woman staffer and two girls have been detained after police allegedly recovered a set of question papers suspected to be that of AIIMS entrance test from them, police said on Monday.

Senior Superintendent of Police (Ghaziabad) Akhil Kumar said they have sent a team to AIIMS to cross check whether the set of papers seized from the trio were the same set which is being used for the entrance test being held on Monday.

"We have detained three persons, including one Meena Aggarwal who is an AIIMS staffer, on Sunday night. We are interrogating all of them," Kumar said.

However, the entrance test began this morning as scheduled, AIIMS Spokesperson Y K Gupta said.

The girls were seen at Aggarwal's place last night with their families, he said adding they were supposed to sit for the entrance test on Monday.

Aggarwal is a resident of Ghaziabad and according to the parents of girls, she allegedly demanded Rs 10 lakh for each person, he said.

"It might be a case of cheating. She might be cheating these girls of real papers. She was extracting money from them. But we cannot say with certainty now. Our teams are in AIIMS to cross check," he said.
