Debarred for 3 years, student ranks 3rd in medical entrance

He was debarred for three years from appearing in the medical entrance conducted by Jharkhand Joint Entrance Examination Council on impersonation charge and an FIR was filed in this connection, OSD of the council Ramakant Singh told PTI today.

Singh said a case of fraud was filed against Oraon after he was caught during counselling when his photographs on the admit card and counselling did not match in 2008-09.

"Oraon appeared the examination this year and ranked third among the ST category. A council meeting will take a final decision on his admission which is scheduled on August 25," Singh said.

"As it was a case of impersonation and that he had no criminal background, a lenient approach could be taken."

Asked whether Oraon would be allowed to take admission in any of the medical colleges as he had finished third this year, Tribal Welfare Minister Champai Soren said, "We are looking into it."

Oraon said he had learnt from his mistake and vowed to get through the examinations through sheer hard work.
