Cases of cheating in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test-Graduate (NEET-UG) exam conducted in May in the country are continuously coming to light from many states. The CBI investigating the paper leak case has arrested one more accused from Gujarat. This new arrest has taken place in Godhra where the owner of a private school has been nabbed.

Dixit Patel, owner of Jai Jalaram School near Godhra in Panchmahal district, was arrested by the CBI on Sunday. With Patel’s arrest, the number of people arrested in this case has increased to 6 in the state so far. Out of which 5 were detained by Gujarat Police. Patel’s Jai Jalaram School was also one of the designated exam centers where the NEET-UG exam was conducted on May 5.

10 lakh rupees each was demanded from 27 candidates.

Public prosecutor Rakesh Thakor said that Jai Jalaram School owner Dixit Patel was arrested from his house. CBI is now taking Patel to Ahmedabad to take him on remand. “The paper leak case has also been handed over to the CBI by the Gujarat government, so a CBI team will produce him (Dixit Patel) in an Ahmedabad court to get his remand,” he said.

Patel is the sixth accused arrested in the case. The accused demanded Rs 10 lakh each from at least 27 candidates to help them clear the exam. Apart from Patel, Panchmahal police arrested 5 other people. Those arrested include Vadodara education consultant Parasuram Roy, Jai Jalaram school principal Purushottam Sharma, school teacher Tushar Bhatt and alleged middlemen Vibhor Anand and Arif Vohra.

Advice on choosing a center for Jai Jalaram School

The CBI had started the investigation into the paper leak case a week ago. He sought custody of four other accused besides Parasuram Roy. The Godhra district court on Saturday sent Purushottam Sharma, Tushar Bhatt, Vibhor Anand and Arif Vohra to CBI custody till July 2.

Currently, the preliminary investigation by the CBI has revealed that these accused asked the students to choose Jai Jalaram School as the exam center to get more marks in NEET-UG.

Out of 27 students only 3 could clear the exam

The Gujarat Police even says that the accused allegedly told the candidates that if they did not know the answer to a question, they should not attempt to answer it. The investigation revealed that Bhatt, a physics teacher, wrote the correct answers on the paper after the examination while staying in the school premises.

Meanwhile, the CBI has speeded up the investigation and raided 7 places on Saturday. However, out of the 27 students who made advance payments for paper leaks or agreed to give money to Roy and others, only 3 students managed to clear the exam with passing marks, while the remaining 23 failed.
