The Kerala High Court has directed the National Testing Agency (NTA) that conducts entrance examinations for admission to higher educational institutions, to conduct an investigation into the alleged manipulation of the Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) sheet of a candidate in Kerala who attended the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET).
Considering the petition filed by Rithu Sibi of Thrissur, who attended the NEET 2021 exam conducted on September 12, seeking a CBI probe into the alleged manipulation, Justice N Nagaresh asked the NTA to consider all the material placed by the petitioner, conduct an investigation and submit a report before the court on or before November 8.
The petitioner sought a directive to forthwith produce the original OMR sheet before the court.
On the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Bose, it would be appropriate to take stock of this larger than life leader of India's struggle for independence and his undying legacy.
