Madurai: Madras high court has dismissed the bail petition of an accused arrested in connection with the impersonation at the national eligibility-cum-entrance test (Neet) for MBBS admission. M Arumugam, a resident of Dharmapuri district, stated that the Theni CB-CID officials had arrested him on December 8 suspecting his involvement in the impersonation case. He claimed that he was arrested merely because he was in touch with a person named Rashid, one of the accused in the case.

Since he is working as an LIC agent he said he was in contact with Rashid who had taken an insurance policy from him. He had not acted as a broker for impersonation in the test as alleged by the prosecution. He further submitted that there is no material available except the bank transaction with regard to the policy taken by Rashid.


Arumugam said he had filed a bail petition before the Theni principal sessions judge which was dismissed on December 18. When the bail petition was heard at a vacation sitting on Friday, Justice G R Swaminathan dismissed it saying that the main accused in the case has not been arrested yet.
