RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav has broken silence on 'aide linked to NEET paper leak’ charge by Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Vijay Kumar Sinha. Yadav said that BJP wants to divert the issue from the kingpin.

Taking to reporters on Friday, the RJD leader said, "The INDIA alliance is united on this issue. We want the NEET exam to be immediately cancelled...The (BJP) have all the investigation agencies, they can call the PS or PA anyone for probe...They want to divert the issue from the kingpin...Those who want to drag my name or my PA's name, this will not benefit anyone...The engineer who is talked about could be a beneficiary but Amit Anand and Nitish Kumar are the masterminds of the paper leak. The people of the country know that whenever BJP comes to power, then paper leaks happen."

Bihar Deputy CM Sinha has claimed that officials associated with Tejashwi Yadav were in constant touch with prime suspect,  Sikander Prasad Yadvendu, in the NEET paper leak. Sinha also said a request will be made to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to recommend a CBI probe into the suspected links of the arrested prime suspect with officials associated with Tejashwi Yadav.

"Recommending a probe by any independent agency like the CBI is the prerogative of the CM…we will meet him (Nitish Kumar) and urge him to do the needful in the matter pertaining to suspected links of arrested accused in the NEET 'paper leak' case with officials associated with RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav," Sinha told PTI.

The DyCM demanded a high-level probe into the matter amid the rising nationwide protests over the alleged irregularities in the NEET-UG-2024 exam and hearing before the Supreme Court in the matter on July 8.
