Patna: In a significant development concerning the alleged NEET paper leak, Anurag Yadav, a 22-year-old candidate from Bihar, has confessed to obtaining leaked exam papers through his uncle, a junior engineer.

Anurag Yadav, a student of Allen Institute Kota, admitted to receiving the leaked question papers and answer sheets from his uncle. He stated that his uncle arranged the papers and called him back to Bihar, where he was handed the materials on the night of June 4.

Yadav confirmed that the questions provided matched those in the actual exam held at DY Patil School.

“I returned from Kota and was taken to Amit Anand and Nitish Kumar by my uncle on the night of May 4, where I was given the NEET exam question paper and answer sheet, which I was made to study and memorise overnight,” Yadav stated.

Amidst the ongoing NEET controversy, Anurag Yadav revealed to the police that his uncle, Sikandar Yadavendu, also arrested, assured him the exam was “sorted” and asked him to return to Samastipur. He received the questions and answers the night before the exam, which were found to be accurate during the test.

Anurag’s scorecard from the National Testing Agency (NTA) shows he scored 185 out of 720, with a percentile score of 54.84. A detailed look at his scores reveals a mismatch, with 85.8 percentile in Physics, 51 percentile in Biology, but only 5 percentile in Chemistry, suggesting insufficient time to memorize the chemistry answers.
