Jaipur, 6th May. 
A shocking incident emerged during the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) as an MBBS student was apprehended for impersonating another candidate in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur. Alongside the student, five accomplices, including the candidate and the mastermind behind the racket, were detained by the police.

Initial investigations uncovered a devious operation orchestrated by Ravi Meena, a college peer of the impersonator Abhishek Gupta. Allegedly, Meena accepted a hefty sum of ₹10 lakh from Rahul Gurjar, the actual candidate, in exchange for securing a proxy to sit the exam on his behalf.

The deceit was unveiled when invigilators at the Master Adityendra School, under the Mathura Gate police station area, grew suspicious of Gupta’s presence during the exam. Upon closer scrutiny, they discovered his impersonation and promptly alerted the authorities.

Assistant Superintendent of Police, Aklesh Kumar, stated that Gupta confessed to his involvement and disclosed the identities of his five associates, who were waiting in a car outside the examination center. The police are currently interrogating all involved parties, with further actions pending.

The individuals detained alongside Gupta and Meena were identified as Amit, Dayaram, and Suraj Singh, in addition to Rahul Gurjar, the candidate who sought the fraudulent arrangement.

Meanwhile, chaos ensued at another exam center in Sawai Madhopur, where candidates reported receiving question papers in the wrong language. Parents accompanying the candidates alleged mistreatment by the authorities when they protested against the discrepancy.

Responding to the incident, the National Testing Agency (NTA) issued a public notice acknowledging the “incorrect distribution” of question papers. They assured proactive measures to uphold fairness and enable affected candidates to sit for a makeup exam without disruption to their academic pursuits.

Sadhna Parashar, Senior Director at NTA, emphasized their commitment to ensuring equal opportunities for all candidates, despite the setbacks encountered during the examination process.
