NEET case: HC grants bail to Udit Surya

The Madurai Bench of Madras High Court today granted conditional bail to K V Udit Surya, a medico who is accused of NEET impersonation.

He was the first student to be arrested for using a proxy to write the NEET for him. He was booked along with his father Venkatesan, a doctor at Government Stanley Hospital. While Surya was granted bail today, Venkatesan’s bail plea was dismissed.

Denying him bail, Justice G R Swaminathan observed, 'It appears that Venkatesan has drawn inspiration from the Tamil movie Vasool Raja MBBS'.

CB-CID found other students including Praveen of SRM Medical college and his father Saravanan, owner of a travel company, Rahul of Balaji Medical college and his father Davis, a sub-contractor for laying internet cables and Abirami of Sai Satya Medical College linked to the impersonation same fraud.

CB-CID also arrested Shafi, an alleged fake doctor from Vaniyambadi, who reportedly introduced a broker Rasheed to the other parents. His son Irfan had used an imposter to clear the NEET exam for him, it is said.
