CBI conducts searches at 19 locations over alleged manipulation of 2021 JEE (Mains) exam

The Central Bureau of Investigation carried out searches at 19 locations in connection with alleged manipulation of the 2021 JEE (Mains) examination by a private institute, Affinity Education Pvt. Limited and its directors.

After the examination was over, the CBI teams swooped down at 19 locations in Delhi and NCR, Pune, Jamshedpur, Indore and Bangalore. The searches led to recovery of 25 laptops, seven PCs, around 30 post-dated cheques along with voluminous incriminating documents and devices. It was alleged that the directors in conspiracy with other associates and touts, were manipulating the online examination of JEE (Mains).

CBI sources said, the institute directors were facilitating aspiring students to get admission into top NITs in consideration of huge amounts by solving the applicant’s question paper through remote access from a chosen examination centre in Sonepat in Haryana. Several people are being questioned and the investigation is continuing.
