  • EOU will call seven candidates again by issuing notice
  • Nitish and Amit were in the role of liner

According to sources, Sikandar had got the setting done through Nitish and Amit. However, both were in the role of liners below the main setter. The question paper reached Bihar through WhatsApp. The main accused who gave it to middle setters like Nitish and Amit in Bihar are still away from the grasp of the investigating agency. Nitish, originally a resident of Sarvadha in Gaya district, lives in Pratibha Colony near Kachuara Mod in Gopalpur police station area in Patna. Earlier, he was also found involved in the question paper leak case of the teacher recruitment examination. He was also jailed, but he was released within a few days.

Sikandar had arranged setting for four

Sikandar Prasad Yadavendu had arranged setting not only for his brother-in-law Sanjeev Kumar's son Anurag Yadav, but also for three other candidates in the NEET exam. Among the three other candidates, the names of Abhishek Kumar (father-Awadhesh Kumar), Ayush Raj (father-Akhilesh Kumar) and Shivnandan Kumar (father-Ramswaroop Yadav) are in the police records. Sikandar had arranged the setting through Nitish Kumar and Amit Anand. It is a different matter that when the result came, Anurag Yadav got only 5 percent marks in Chemistry, 85.52 percent in Physics and 51.04 percent in Biology. Thus, he got only 185 marks in total. Among other students, Ayush got a total of 300 marks.

The EOU, which is investigating the NEET paper leak case, will again issue notices to the seven students who appeared in this exam and call them. NTA had sent information about nine NEET candidates to the EOU. EOU had called them on 18 and 19 June to question them, but only 2 of them appeared. Seven candidates did not come.
