Chandigarh: Stating that the conspiracy to leak the All India Pre Medical Test/ Pre-Dental Entrance Test /CBSE AIPMT 2015 question paper will deprive genuine students of the country from getting admission in medical institutions, the Haryana police Wednesday demanded cancellation of the test held on May 3.
"It appears that the exam system has failed, and it may deprive genuine students of the country from getting admission in medical institutions. It should be suspended in the interest of justice," said Shrikant Jadhav, inspector general of police, Rohtak range.
The investigators believe that the gang had linkages with different states including Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
They are of the view that since the answer key had been leaked, there was a high possibility of it being circulated among many students. The accused had initially told the cops that they had circulated the answers to only nine students after they had promised to pay between Rs 15 lakh and Rs 20 lakh.
The CBSE however is silent on the issue, and has not taken any decision yet.
More than six lakh students from all across India had given the test considered as one of the toughest entrance exam.
Four people, including two dentists and a MBBS student, were arrested in Haryana for the alleged conspiracy to leak All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) answer sheets on Monday.
Rohtak Range Inspector General Shrikant Jadhav said that police in Rohtak got information that the four people were planning to leak the AIPMT answer sheets in Panipat. The accused had hatched the conspiracy in a hotel in Panipat.
A special team of the Rohtak police raided the hotel and arrested four people. Those arrested include Bhupinder and Sanjit, both dentists, MBBS student Ravi and another person called Rajesh. Police officials said that one more person, Roop Singh Dangi, was on the run and yet to be arrested.
The accused were using social media like Whatsapp to transfer images of the answer sheets. Police also recovered undergarments in which microphones and mobile chips were installed to help the students with answers.
