Kerala High Court Orders Investigation Into ‘NEET-OMR Fraud’

Kochi: A probe was ordered by the Kerala High Court on alleged malpractice on the optical mark recognition (OMR) sheet of a candidate appearing for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).

Following a petition filed by Rithu Sibi of Varandarappilly in Thrissur, Justice N Nagaresh ordered the National Testing Agency (NTA), which administers NEET, to carry out a probe.

The petitioner alleged that the OMR sheet published along with the results, a couple of days after the NEET held on September 12, was different from the one she submitted.

The petitioner had recorded her fingerprint and her personal details, including the name of parent, on the OMR sheet during the test.

However, the petitioner alleged that the OMR sheet published in her name has the name of her parent in someone else’s handwriting and the fingerprint doesn’t match hers.
