MPPEB board cancells 345 Medical students results, probed PMT scam

345 Medical students results cancelled
The Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB), has cancelled the results of 345 medical students, who appeared for Pre-Medical Test (PMT).


MPPEB had conducted the PMT Medical exam on July 2013.

Some of these students have already taken admission in Government Medical colleges.

A five-member committee of the board concluded that these students were allotted roll numbers by manipulating the seating arrangement in collusion with the staff.

The Special Task Force (STF) has provided reports to the committee, crime branch of Indore that probed the PMT scam.

A chargesheet against 28 people has been filed in an Indore court by investigating agencies, which includes kingpins of three modules, and board officials.

A supplementary chargesheet will be filed against former controller of examination of MPPEB Pankaj Trivedi, who was arrested last week.

Ashish Khare, a senior STF official, told that the number of students under scanner was as high as 876.

The students had paid Rs 25 lakh to board officials, to help them in examination hall, and seating arrangements.
