Patna, June 24: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered an FIR concerning the NEET question paper leak following a report from the Bihar Economic Offences Unit (EOU).

An EOU source revealed that a NEET question paper, identified by booklet number 6136488, was shared on a WhatsApp group connected to the 'examination mafia' in Patna. This booklet was initially received by Oasis School in Hazaribagh.

 

Investigations revealed that the box containing the booklet was tampered with. The CBI is determining if the leak occurred during transit to the bank or between the bank and the examination center.

 

Sources identified Sanjeev Mukhiya, an employee at Nursarai Udyan College, Nalanda, as the ringleader. Mukhiya allegedly collaborated with associates to leak the NEET exam paper over several months.

 

Prior to the exam, a professor purportedly sent the paper to Mukhiya on WhatsApp. It was then solved by PG medical students from Patna and Ranchi before being forwarded to Chintu Kumar, also known as Baldev, in Nalanda district.

The Bihar EOU discovered a list of selected candidates who received and memorized the paper beforehand. So far, 13 individuals have been arrested, and more are being interrogated.

 

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) of EOU conducted raids in Deoghar, Jharkhand, arresting six individuals, including Chintu Kumar, who is reportedly related to Mukhiya. The EOU also identified the PG medical students involved, with 10 students from medical colleges in Patna and Ranchi now under scrutiny.

 

The involvement of these students was uncovered through WhatsApp chats with the accused, where the question papers were sent to their mobile phones.
