CBI unearths racket in medical exams

The CBI has unearthed a racket relating to manipulations in the recently held AIIMS PG Exam and an all India-level veterinary test with the arrest of seven persons, including a doctor.

In the All-India Pre-Veterinary Test held on May 14, 2011, the CBI registered a case against the main accused (a doctor) proprietor and an employee of a private firm and others regarding manipulations in Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) Sheets for admission of a large number of candidates.

It was alleged that the private firm was awarded contract by Veterinary Council of India(VCI) for result processing including manufacturing and scanning of OMR sheets of the said examination, a CBI spokesperson said.

The accused in connivance with the candidates printed duplicate OMR sheets of the said candidates bearing the same bar codes and replaced the original OMR sheets with the duplicate ones in VCI office in order to get favourable result in the said examination.
