Gujarat NEET Scandal: Accused Instructed Non-Gujarati Candidates to Choose Gujarati Exam Language

Several NEET-UG candidates from states such as Odisha, Bihar, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh, who appeared for their exam in Godhra, Gujarat, were instructed by the accused to choose Gujarati as their exam language. This tactic was reportedly used to facilitate Gujarati individuals involved in the scam to fill out their answer sheets, as revealed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in a Gujarat court while seeking custody of the accused.

The CBI’s investigation into alleged malpractices at two exam centers uncovered that these candidates were also instructed to list their permanent addresses as Panchmahal or Vadodara. The control of both examination centers was allegedly under the same operators, and the accused contacted candidates from different states through various channels.

Five of the six accused have been taken into custody by the CBI, including Dixit Patel, owner of Jai Jalaram School in Godhra, which was one of the designated NEET-UG exam centers on May 5. Patel, who was arrested on June 30 at his residence, is accused of demanding Rs 10 lakh from each student to ensure their success in the NEET-UG exam.

The CBI, which took over the investigation from Gujarat police last month, is now focusing on uncovering “interstate links” as part of a broader conspiracy. The agency has registered six FIRs and arrested 11 people so far in connection with the case. The FIR filed in Bihar pertains to paper leaks, while those from Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra are related to candidate impersonation and cheating.
