Admission racket at AIIMS busted

June 26, 2011

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday busted an admission racket at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) where answersheets for the postgraduate entrance test were allegedly being manipulated to favour some of the candidates. CBI registered a case and conducted raids at 10 places in Delhi, Ghaziabad and other places in the NCR. CBI spokesperson Dharini Mishra said nine persons have been detained in connection with the admission racket. However, officials did not confirm if any AIIMS official has been detained.

The nine detained persons were being questioned till late in the night by CBI officials but no arrests have been made so far. Sources said those detained include a person who runs a coaching institute for medical students. The accused persons were reportedly manipulating answersheets in return for bribes from candidates. The agency is examining the number of candidates who were approached by the accused persons after which the answersheets would be checked.
