The National Testing Agency (NTA) is yet to file an affidavit in Supreme court in connection with the steps taken to identify the candidates who benefited from the NEET-UG paper leak.

The apex court on Monday had asked the NTA to file a status report and affidavit with all the details by 5 pm on July 10.

The apex court had also asked about the first incident of paper leak that took place, the manner in which the question papers leaked were disseminated, and the time duration between the occurrence of the leak and the exam on May 5.

The apex court said that there was no doubt that the NEET-UG held on May 5 was compromised by a question paper leak.

A bench of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and Justices JB Pardiwala and Manoj Misra said that the fact that the sanctity of the exam has been compromised is beyond doubt. 

“It is an admitted fact that there is a leak and the nature of the leak is something that we are determining.”

The case will be heard next on July 11.

CBI arrests two more persons

The CBI on Tuesday arrested two more persons, including a candidate, from Patna in the NEET-UG paper leak case, taking the total number of arrests by the agency to 11.

This is the first time the CBI has arrested a candidate in connection with the alleged irregularities in NEET-UG.

NEET-UG aspirant Sunny, who hails from Nalanda, and the father of another candidate Ranjit Kumar, who is from Gaya, have been arrested, they said.

The CBI has so far arrested eight people in the Bihar NEET-UG paper leak case, one each in connection with alleged exam manipulation in Gujarat's Latur and Godhra, and one from Dehradun in connection with general conspiracy, the officials said.
