CBI ARREST

New Delhi , July 11 : The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has arrested accused Rakesh Ranjan alias Rocky from Bihar's Nalanda in connection with the NEET paper leak case.

Ranjan's arrest brings a significant advancement in the investigation, the agency said on Thursday.

Rakesh Ranjan, who is believed to be a one of key player in the NEET paper leak network, was taken into custody following a planned operation by the CBI.

"Before his arrest, the CBI set a trap and conducted raids at four locations in the vicinity of Patna and in Kolkata," a senior CBI official told ANI.

The development comes on the heels of a series of coordinated raids at multiple locations, including Patna and Kolkata, aimed at dismantling the intricate web of individuals involved in the scam.

Ranjan's arrest is seen as a crucial step towards uncovering the full extent of the malpractice that has cast a shadow over the integrity of one of India's most important entrance examinations, the agency said.

The CBI's investigation has so far resulted in the arrest of over dozen of suspects, each allegedly playing a role in the leak and distribution of the NEET exam papers.

The CBI has been utilising advanced investigative techniques to track down and apprehend those involved.

"Ranjan was located and identified through a detailed analysis of digital footprints, including IP addresses and email communications, underscoring the agency's dedication to employing cutting-edge technology in its efforts to combat corruption and fraud," the official added.

The CBI continues to pursue leads and gather evidence in the ongoing investigation. The NEET-UG exam, held on May 5, 2024, has been mired in controversy, with allegations of cheating and impersonation.

The National Testing Agency (NTA), which conducted the exam, has faced severe criticism, leading to protests and legal actions. The Union Health Ministry has postponed the NEET-PG 2024 examination, with new dates to be announced soon.

The government has replaced the chief of the NTA and formed a committee to review and improve its functioning. ( ANI)
