A day after Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Vijay Kumar Sinha claimed that the arrested prime suspect in the NEET "paper leak" is linked to officials associated with RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, the party hit back with a photo of another accused, Amit Anand, with Deputy Chief Minister Samrat Choudhary.

In an X post, the party said the minister was being felicitated by the accused, but has deleted all his photos with him.

"The main accused in the NEET exam paper leak scam with the Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar," RJD tweeted.

"The so called powerful minister who was felicitated by the accused has deleted all his photos with him from his social media handles, but don't worry, we have them all."

"Send this to your worried counterparts the other Deputy Chief Minister," the party added.

Addressing a press conference on Thursday, Sinha claimed that the official was in constant touch with Sikander Prasad Yadvendu, the arrested prime accused in the case.

"The official associated with Yadav used to arrange accommodation for Sikandar at guest houses in Patna and other places. I have details of messages which the official had sent to the persons concerned for arranging accommodation for Sikandar," the Deputy Chief Minister said.

Sinha claimed he has the mobile number from which those messages were sent.

He said, "It needs to be thoroughly probed. Why is the RJD leader (Tejashwi Prasad) maintaining a stoic silence on this?"

Reacting to Sinha's allegations, the RJD termed it as a "bundle of lies" and said the BJP leader is simply trying to divert the attention of 25 lakh NEET aspirants from their core demand to cancel the exam held on May 5.

NEET-UG 2024, conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA), took place at 4,750 centres in 571 cities in which more than 24 lakh candidates appeared. The results were declared on June 4.

However, immediately after the results were announced, students raised allegations of irregularities when 67 students achieved top scores, amidst claims of question paper leaks in Bihar.
