The Kerala High Court on Tuesday directed for a probe on alleged malpractice on the optical mark recognition (OMR) sheet of a candidate who appeared for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).
Justice N Nagaresh ordered the National Testing Agency (NTA), which administers NEET, to conduct a probe after considering a petition filed by Rithu Sibi of Varandarappilly in Thrissur.
It was alleged by the petitioner that the OMR sheet published along with the results two days after the NEET held on September 12th was different than the one submitted by her.
During the test, the petitioner had recorded her fingerprint and her personal details, including the name of parent, on the OMR sheet. However, the OMR sheet published in her name has the name of her parent in somebody else’s handwriting and the fingerprint doesn’t match hers, the petitioner has alleged. It is also pointed out that the roll number entered in numerals and the one in the OMR format are different. After perusing these details, the court directed NTA to conduct a probe.
