Plea on alleged NEET paper leak to be heard by SC on Tuesday
The Supreme Court will on Tuesday hear a plea seeking probe into alleged paper leak of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) phase 2.
The petition was mentioned by senior advocate Sanjay Hedge before a bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur which listed it for hearing tomorrow before the bench of Justice A R Dave.
The plea filed by NEET aspirant Anshul Sharma has sought a status report into the alleged leakage of question papers which should be submitted before the court.
It said that Uttarakhand Police arrested five people belonging to an inter-state racket on July 23, a day before the entrance exam.
CBSE, which had rejected the claim of paper leak, had conduced the NEET Phase II examination on July 24 while NEET-I was held on May 1. The combined results of NEET-I and NEET-II will be declared on August 17.
CBSE had claimed that it was an attempt made by some unscrupulous elements to cheat the candidates on false promises.
