NEET case: bail hearing of medicos adjourned

The Judicial Magistrate Court has adjourned the hearing of the bail applications of two medical students — one from the SRM Medical College and one from the Balaji Medical College — and those of their fathers, in connection with the NEET impersonation case, to October 21.

The students were accused of using a proxy to clear NEET.

A student of the Theni Government Medical College, who was among the first to be arrested by the CB-CID in connection with the case, was granted bail by the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court on October 17.

However, the court denied bail to his father.

Another student, of the Dharmapuri Government Medical College, and his father have been remanded in the Theni district jail. A girl student of the Saveetha Medical College and her mother have been remanded in the Madurai central prison.

The CB-CID is on the lookout for the agents suspected of involvement in the scam, who are said to be hiding in neighbouring Karnataka and Kerala.

HC seeks report

Meanwhile, the High Court Bench that has been hearing the bail applications has sought details from the police on the action taken to secure the agents and the impersonators.
