The Haryana Police has issued notice to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) after the latter shrugged off the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) question paper leak.

CBSE controller K K Chaudhary has denied any “leak” in the AIPMT exam held on May 3, but Haryana Police maintained that the exam stands compromised because of the “leak”. “It is not a constable who is saying the AIPMT paper was leaked. It is the Inspector General of Police who is saying it,” Rohtak range IG Shrikant Jadhav said.

“We have got two sets of answer keys (Set E and F). We have got the answer keys verified from a private PMT coaching institute in Rohtak. In the first set, out of 60 answers, 50 were found genuine. There were 90 questions in the other set, which have been found genuine. The recovery of answer keys has been made from the accused who we arrested and interrogated. We had intercepted their mobile phones. I myself heard the conversations, constituted a team and raided the place from where we arrested four persons. CBSE is adopting a casual approach and is not taking us seriously,” Jadhav told The Indian Express.

“We have got vital clues. We are developing further information and more arrests are likely in the coming days… I am getting calls from worried parents from all over the country, who want this examination to be conducted again,” Jadhav said.

The exam took place on May 3. The next morning, the Haryana Police disclosed the arrest of four persons, including two BDS doctors, Sanchit and Bhupender, a second-year MBBS student Ravi Attri and their accomplice Rajesh. From their possession, police recovered nine bluetooth unit-fitted vests purchased from a shop in New Delhi.
The kingpin in the alleged racket, Roop Singh Dangi, a resident of Meham, Rohtak, is at large. Dangi’s close aide, Krishan, too has been arrested by police.

Haryana Police also claimed to have obtained CCTV footage from a hotel in Behror in Alwar district of Rajasthan, where Dangi allegedly held a meeting with at least nine persons who played a role in the scam. Of these, seven have been identified by police.

On May 7, CBSE controller Chaudhary had issued a statement, saying, “During the examination or after the examination, no reports were received from any quarters regarding the leak as alleged. The first news report of the leak appeared only on May 5 after a lapse of two days.”

Jadhav claimed that the Haryana Police had informed Chaudhary about the alleged paper leak on May 4. “We made the arrests on May 4. The same day, Shashank Anand, the Superintendent of Police, Rohtak, had himself spoken to the CBSE controller and informed him about the alleged paper leak. It is surprising that the CBSE is still maintaining that the paper was not leaked.”

CBSE has maintained that “the issue pertains to the use of unfair means and attempts to cheat”. “On careful study of the press reports, it appears that the issue pertains to the use of unfair means and attempt to cheat by certain unscrupulous elements after the commencement of the paper. The police department of the area is initiating suitable action as per law,” the CBSE statement reads.

        I fail to understand how can people refuse a re conduct of the exam? I don't think CBSE would ask for exam fee again then what is the problem in giving the exam again? Unless you are involved in the paper leak scam and afraid that your money has been wasted and you would have to study again. AIPMT itself has 1700 seats for general students so even 10 seats matter to us. And for students belonging to Haryana, AIPMT score is considered so with all the leak and cheating where will they go?
