CET scam: BOPEE issues notice to 4 beneficiary candidates

Srinagar: The J&K Board of Professional Entrance Examinations (BOPEE) has issued show-cause notice to four students asking why their admission to MBBS should not be cancelled for having managed it fraudulently in 2012.
The students– Mir Heena Saleem daughter of Chee Anantnag, Umar Manzoor of Chake Wanihama anantnag, Sakshi Pandita of Banatalab Jammu, and Saima Hussain of Shangus Nowgam Anantnag– have been asked to reply within a week or face cancellation of their admission.
“In case of no reply, it shall be presumed that you have nothing to say in your defence and action under rules shall be initiated against you which may include cancellation of admission,” Under Secretary of the BOPEE said.
The CET-conducting body has already cancelled admission of 21 students who according to Crime Branch of police had managed admission through fraudulent means.
Meanwhile, the Crime Branch has arrested three out of 17 absconders wanted in the cash-for-paper scam allegedly engineered by the former BOPEE chairman Mushtaq Ahmad Peer.
Official sources said that one among them had surrendered after his property was attached in consonance with the directions by court.
The arrested, who are currently in judicial custody in Srinagar central jail, include Mohammad Amin(DFO), Altaf Shah (DFO) and Mushtaq Ahmad Dar(AEE).
