A student from Assam, who topped the Joint Entrance Examinations (JEE) Main by securing 99.8 percent marks, has been arrested by the Assam police for using proxy to write the exam.

The Guwahati Police, on Wednesday, arrested the candidate and his father on whom charges were pressed for cheating by impersonation, criminal conspiracy and criminal breach of trust. Three employees ? identified as Hirulal Pathak, Pranjal Kalita and Hemendra Sharma ? of the agency that conducted the test were also booked. 

As per a report in DNA, police made the arrests after a complaint was lodged by Mitradev Sharma, on October 23, who alleged that the candidate did not appear for the test held on September 5 and had someone else write the test for him. 

The topper identified as, Neel Nakshatra Das and his father Dr Jyotirmoy Das, have been taken into custody and will be produced in a local court on Thursday. 

During investigation, it was revealed that Neel had committed fraud by using proxy to appear in JEE Main 2020 exam via phone call to a friend, the police informed. But the relationship between the duo wasn’t made clear.

Sharma alleged that on the day of the exam, the candidate entered the specified centre at Borjhar area, but came out just after completing the biometric attendance. Then with the help of an invigilator, an unidentified person took the test for him. 

Guwahati Police Commissioner MP Gupta, told NDTV that the case may be part of a bigger scam. The staff of the testing centre in Guwahati is also involved. We are searching for more people [suspects in the case]. This might not be a one-off case but may be part of a larger scam, he said.


The police have now approached the National Testing Agency, which conducted the test across the country, and sought information related to the JEE Main to help them conduct further investigations.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
