CHENNAI: The Madras High Court on Tuesday directed the National Testing Agency (NTA) to furnish on September 13 the original answer sheet of a Chennai-based medical aspirant. The student alleged that the NTA had released some other answer sheet instead of releasing the girl’s OMR answer sheet.

Justice R Subramanian passed the direction on hearing a petition filed by 19-year-old K Bhavamirthne, a resident of Velachery, Chennai. The judge passed the direction after examining the finger impression of the girl and the impression on the answer sheet released by NTA.

After identifying the fact that the finger impression on the answer paper was differing from the girl’s original impression, the judge directed the NTA to furnish the original copy of the answer sheet belonging to the girl.

Representing the petitioner, advocate A Saravanan submitted that his client had left out only 13 questions in the answer sheet. However, the answer sheet released in the name of his client showed that around 60 questions were not answered by the girl.

He further stated that the petitioner was sure that the answer sheet published by the NTA is completely different from the one which was attended by the aspirant.

However, NTA’s standing counsel informed the court that the NEET results will be released on September 7 and sought adjournment of the case to some other dates.

The judge rejected the request of NTA and directed the agency to furnish the original copy of the student on September 13.
