Following the complaints by activist Dr Anand Rai over the AIIMS MBBS 2017 entrance exam question papers leaked, the premier medical institute has constituted a committee to probe the issue. Rai, known as the whistleblower of the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh has been actively involved in exposing malpractices in medical examinations like NEET. In a series of tweets, he posted desktop images of question papers of the entrance examination, held across the country on May 28.

The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) said it has constituted a committee to inquire into the matter and it is in contact with the investigation agencies for necessary action once the facts are ascertained. “I suggest the committee to cross check the answers and the results of those 70 students,” said Rai.

He also alleged that the paper was leaked from the MC Saxena College in Lucknow. “They have allowed the racketeers to enter the exam centre and take screen shot. About 70 students are involved in this malpractices,” said he. Read | AIIMS MBBS 2017 exam: Analysis for morning and evening session, click here

Rai pointed out that the cheating format is similar to the 2012 AIIMS PG paper leak where they targetted an exam centre, scanned question papers which were sent to the Noida control room. The answers were then sent to the candidates.

In a statement, AIIMS has said that they’ll look into the matter. “The AIIMS has constituted a committee to inquire into the matter. The committee shall look into the matter immediately and submit a report at the earliest,” said the institute.

It also said that the administration is also in contact with the government investigation agencies in this regard. “Immediate and further necessary action shall be taken once the facts are ascertained,” the statement said.  The AIIMS online entrance test was held in two shifts, adding that the screenshots clearly prove that the question papers were leaked while the examination was going on.

      Reservation is not a violation of an Article 14........then why NEET 2017......Dual standard........ If reservation in the Education,Job,politics everywhere is not a violation of an Article 14.....then why in the NEET 2017 different papers is a violation of an Article14?..............Due to reservation there is no equality of all the students as well as the citizens even though having an equal marks or qualification........Before presenting a false pretex of violation of an Article 14 in NEET 2017 to the courts and giving the judgements about the NEET......the judiciary.authority and the government must completely remove the reservation system from the cons ution as well as from the governance.....it is better and in the interest of the country that the judiciary and the government can identify those selfish elements who have misinterpreting and misusing the Indian laws and rules and pe ioning in the courts to cancel and abolish the holy NEET......

        Under the current situation if Honble Court orders for a retest it will be a gross injustice for those innocent students who will be forced to bear the same pain again till the date of re-examination. Who knows what fault CBSE will do in the second NEET to encourage some students to go to Court and who can guarantee that Honble Court will not order for a THIRD test? A student can never guarantee the same or better performance in this type of exam where many many factors come into play on the given day including uncertainty regarding health.Punish the culprit, if any. It is the authorities in CBSE who are at fault and not the students. CBSE is in the habit of selecting different papers with different questions in its examination since long. CBSE for their cl XII every year sets different papers for DELHI, different papers for REST OF INDIA and different for FOREIGN students. Even for DELHI there are 4 different sets and all include different questions.

          NEET examination was made mandatory last year under the order of Honble Supreme Court for selection of students aspiring to study Medicine (M. B. B. S) to prevent rampant corruption and deterioration in the quality of students. Private Medical Colleges were in practice of minting crores of rupees to admit students of questionable calibre. As such it is not unlikely that every possible step will be taken by these Private Colleges and State Authorities directly or indirectly to bring back the lost power back to them. CBSE conducted the exam in a lacklustre manner by adopting different question papers for regional languages and it is alleged that those were tougher than the papers set in English. Under the current situation if Honble Court orders for a retest it will be a gross injustice for those innocent students who will be forced to bear the same pain again till the date of re-examination. Who knows what fault CBSE will do in the second NEET to encourage some students to go to Court.

              Who cares scams of this magnitude. Our thinking and deeds are centered around the holy cow. How to protect it. How to issue Aadhar Cards to it. How to set up a pension scheme for it. For the common people, it is your fate. Pray hard to god, at least in the next birth you will be born as a cow.

                Detect & punish very hard the culprits who have tried to breach the sanc y of such compi ive exams of national importance. An exampler punishment should be given so that no one can dare such frauds in future. The hard work of the sincere and honest students must not be taken to stake.
