In a significant development, CBI sleuths on Saturday confiscated the records pertaining to a dozen candidates, who were to "benefit" from the seven dummy candidates arrested by the CBI on November 10 during the MD/MS entrance examination of the institute. Also, PGIMER on Saturday officially announced December 8 as the date of MD/ MS examination to be held after the one held on November 10 was scrapped recently.
Sources in PGIMER revealed that following the interrogation of the main accused, CBI officials got to know about these 12 students who were to benefit from the dummy candidates.
PGI sources say that CBI specifically sought the record pertaining to these 12 candidates and took away mainly the application forms of these candidates.
Meanwhile, the entrance test will now be held on December 8 from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm. For further information regarding centres, admit cards etc., the candidates concerned are advised to look up the PGI website, www.pgimer.nic.in.
Even on November 15, a CBI team had visited the institute and had taken away with them entire records, pertaining to the candidates, who were arrested by the investigative agency. The confiscated record included the copies of their certificates and testimonials that they had submitted to the institute to be eligible for the entrance examination.
Significantly PGIMER has no mechanism to check the authenticity of the documents submitted to PGIMER, a fact well known to the gang members who submitted fake certificates to the PGIMER in order to gain entry into the exam centres.
