Now, admission of 150 more students may be cancelled
The future of the students who resorted to shortcuts in order to secure a position in 200-2010 Pre-PG (medical) entrance exam or Vyapam, seems to be landing in a soup as the admission of 150 more students could be cancelled. These would be students who got a stay from Allahabad HC.
The order is expected after HC sought a suggestion from SC which made it very clear that any admission acquired via wrong means must be held illegal.
Supreme Court on Monday stalled admission of 634 candidates who appeared for the exam.
These are the students who got admissions between 2008 and 2012. As per Justice Chelmeshar, these students were asked to render their services in Army or rural areas for 5 years; post which they would have been allowed to work normally.
Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) which has been probing Vyapam scam, scanned the records of 9.5 lakh aspirants who appeared for the medical entrance exam and found 121 impersonators.
The majority of these students morphed their photo in online forms and had someone else appear for them as proxies.
According to reports, the CBI approached hundreds of medical colleges and coaching institutes spread across Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Bihar.
