NEET Shocker – TN Dentist Arrested for Forging Daughter’s  Marksheet

As confirmed by the Tamil Nadu police, a 47-year-old dentist named Balachandran has been arrested for allegedly forging his daughter’s NEET scorecard and call letter for MBBS admission. The dentist, hailing from Ramanathapuram district, was detained and produced before a court which then remanded him to judicial custody on Friday. As per a police officer, a complaint against the arrestee had been lodged by the Directorate of Medical Education (DME) at the Saidapet sub-jail.

NEET Tamil Nadu Forgery Incident – What Happened Before?

The forgery incident spread like a wildfire on the internet when the father and daughter duo was initially suspected by the officials at an MBBS counselling session. Both the father and daughter turned up for the counselling session on November 30, 2020 with a forged NEET scorecard and a call letter as well. The forged marksheet showed a NEET score of 610 and the call letter too seemed to be the exact replica of the original call letter for the MBBS NEET counselling in the state. However, after scrutinizing the marksheet and call letter submitted by them, it was found that the documents were allegedly doctored. The counselling authorities then probed the identity of the accused candidate and found that her name didn’t feature in the rank list or call list for the counselling session. 

Later, in a complaint to the Periamet police, the Additional Director of Medical Education and Secretary of the Selection Committee, G Selvarajan stated that the candidate had only secured 27 marks in NEET and had submitted a “forged” marksheet and a call letter. After this shocking revelation, the incident was brought to the notice of the police and the accused dentist was busted.

Similar to this case, a shocking NEET impersonation scam rocked the state of Tamil Nadu in 2019, when 9 people were arrested which included a bunch of medical aspirants as well. These candidates had allegedly hired expert proxies, who eventually passed the NEET exam on their behalf but were later scrutinized by the NEET counselling authorities and taken into custody by the Tamil Nadu police.
