Got NEET-UG Leaked Question A Day Before, Confesses Arrested Bihar Student

Patna: Four arrested men have confessed that question paper for the medical entrance exam was leaked a day before the test, reported NDTV.

Students are protesting against allegations of NEET-UG 2024 paper leak and grace marks awarded to over 1,500 aspirants. While the grace marks were later scrapped and the students were offered a re-test, the Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has denied the paper leak.

The four men arrested from Bihar on charges of NEET question paper leak are a medical aspirant Anurag Yadav, Sikandar Yadavendu – a junior engineer at Danapur municipal council – and two others – Nitish Kumar and Amit Anand.

In their statement to the Bihar police officials, they are reported to have confessed that they received the question paper the day prior to the exam and were made to memorize it. They also added that the exact questions were there in the NEET exam the next day.

Anurag Yadav said, “I was made to read and memorize it at night. When I went for the exam, I found the same questions which I had memorized correctly. After the exam, the police came and caught me, and I confessed my crime.”

Yadavendu claimed that the other two accused, Nitish Kumar and Amit Anand, told him they could leak the question paper of any competitive exam and it would cost Rs 30-32 lakh for each aspirant to clear NEET.

“I agreed and told them I have four boys (who need help in passing the exam). On June 4 night, I took them with me and Nitish Kumar and Amit Anand gave them the question paper. Out of greed, I had also asked them for Rs 40 lakh each instead of Rs 30 lakh,” he told the cops, reported NDTV.
