The initial breakthrough came when the Jharkhand STF received intelligence regarding the paper leak, prompting swift action culminating in the arrest of solvers at an examination center. This led to further arrests, with information shared between law enforcement agencies across jurisdictions.

Raids are underway in various parts of the country, including Bihar, with a focus on regions like Patna, Muzaffarpur, Buxar, Bhojpur, and Nalanda. In Patna alone, raids are being conducted in areas such as Kankarbagh, Patrakar Nagar, Ramakrishna Nagar, Ashok Rajpath, and Mahendra.

The gravity of the situation was underscored by an incident at the DAV center in Shastri Nagar, Patna, where a solver was apprehended mid-exam. Acting on intelligence from Ranchi Police, a joint team swiftly moved in, arresting the solver who was taking the exam on behalf of a student from Chapra, Bihar. Additionally, an electronic device linked to the crime was seized from the premises.

Further investigation, spurred by leads from the arrested solver, has resulted in the apprehension of four more individuals involved in the paper leak scandal. As authorities delve deeper into this labyrinthine scheme, the integrity of the NEET UG 2024 exam hangs in the balance, prompting calls for stringent measures to safeguard the sanctity of the examination process.
