The Rajasthan High Court has ordered a police probe into allegations of impersonation of candidates in a test for admission to 14 medical colleges in the state and constituted a committee to verify if wrong questions were set.
Justice RS Rathore observed that prima facie there were irregularities in the admission process for Rajasthan Pre-Medical Test (RPMT) 2009. Now, all admissions to different medical colleges would remain subject to the decision on writ petitions pending before the court.
The court ruling came on Thursday on two petitions which alleged that some candidates have got admission to the medical colleges by engaging professionals to take down their papers and impersonate themselves to be the original candidate.
Observing that report submitted by a committee formed by the government was not satisfactory, Justice Rathore constituted a police team headed by PK Singh, IG (Personal) Police, Jaipur to investigate the charge of impersonation.
The court also constituted a three-member committee headed by Onkar Saxena, former principal SMS Medical College, Jaipur to look into the allegation that there were 15 wrong questions in the test.
