A day after the medical entrance, eight have been arrested for allegedly cheating at the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2021. Earlier, there were reports of a possible NEET paper leak as well. Following the recent reports, aspirants of NEET have now taken to Twitter to highlight the issue. With the hashtag #neetleak, the candidates have demanded a re-exam as well as a high-level inquiry into the matter.
This comes after the recent JEE Main scam case wherein an entire exam centre in Sonipat, Haryana was allegedly hacked. As per reports, a private firm had allegedly taken the exam on behalf of students remotely and the candidates paid Rs15-20 lakh to do so.
