NEET 2024 Candidate Ayushi Patel’s Forgery Scandal: High Court Dismisses Petition

NEET Candidate Ayushi Patel Faces Legal Action for Submitting Forged Documents, Allahabad High Court Dismisses Plea.

The Allahabad High Court expressed dismay at the situation after a NEET candidate submitted forged documents in a plea seeking re-evaluation, stating, “This is a regrettable situation.” The National Testing Agency (NTA) informed the court that it would take legal action against the candidate, Ayushi Patel, who allegedly filed these documents to challenge her NEET undergraduate exam 2024 result [Ayushi Patel vs Union of India and Another].

Justice Rajesh Singh Chauhan dismissed Patel’s petition after her counsel conceded to the NTA’s assertion that forged documents had been presented to the court. The court emphasized that it could not prevent the competent authorities from pursuing legal action against Patel.

“In view of the petitioner filing a petition enclosing forged and fictitious documents, this Court cannot restrain the competent authority from taking legal action against the petitioner as per the law,” stated Justice Rajesh Singh Chauhan.

Earlier this month, Patel had approached the court seeking manual verification of her OMR sheet and an inquiry against the NTA. In response, the NTA presented Patel’s original OMR sheet, attendance record, and scorecard, revealing discrepancies in the application numbers between the attached and original documents.

Highlighting the seriousness of the matter, the court noted, “The documents filed by the petitioner in the writ petition are forged and fictitious.”

The NTA’s representative informed the court that such misconduct could result in a three-year ban from future exams and possible criminal charges. The court referenced a previous order for filing a police report against another candidate who had also submitted falsified documents.

Consequently, Patel’s counsel requested the dismissal of the petition, stating they had no further arguments to present. The court accordingly dismissed the petition as not pressed.

Representing the parties in the case were Advocate Piyush Agnihotri for the petitioner, Advocate Varun Pandey for the Union of India, and Advocate Shashank Bhasin for the NTA.
