Medical student who impersonated, faked NEET scorecard to get admission in Theni Medical College booked
The impersonation in NEET exam came to light, after the college dean received two e-mails on September 11 and 13 from a person identified as Ashok Krishnan
Police registered a First Information Report (FIR) on Wednesday against a first-year student of the Government Theni Medical College for getting MBBS admission allegedly without appearing for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).
The Gandamanur Vilakku police registered a case against K.V.Udit Surya, a native of Chennai under Sections 120 (B), 419 and 420 of the IPC on a complaint filed by the medical college Dean Dr.A.K.Rajendran last evening.
Superintendent of Police V. Baskaran told the media here on Thursday that the photos of Udit Surya in the college application and the NEET-2019 scorecard did not match and hence he was booked for impersonation.
The impersonation in NEET exam came to light, after the college dean received two e-mails on September 11 and 13 from a person identified as Ashok Krishnan that Udit Surya got MBBS admission through impersonation.
Udit Surya failed to crack NEET exams held in 2017 and 2018 in Tamil Nadu. He appeared for the NEET exam-2019 in Mumbai and cleared it. The student, currently pursuing the MBBS course, was not the same person who appeared for the entrance exam.
On getting the e-mail, the dean conducted a probe and forwarded his findings to the Selection Committee of the Directorate of Medical Education (DME) which in turn directed him to lodge a complaint against the student.
Meanwhile, Udit Surya reportedly surrendered his medical seat by writing a letter to the dean stating that he was under depression and unwilling to continue the course. He was also absconding to evade police arrest. A special team was formed to nab him, police sources said.
