The students from across Delhi gathered at the Ministry of Education to protest against the paper leak and subsequent cancellation of the UGC-NET exam held on June 18, 2024. The protest, called by JNUSU, saw more than a hundred students detained. Women protesters were reportedly manhandled by male police officers.

Dhananjay, President of JNUSU, along with other protesters, blocked the road outside the Ministry of Education demanding the release of all detainees.

“NTA has failed students time and again. We are demanding a complete scrapping of the NTA. Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan must also take responsibility and resign. UGC Chairperson Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar must be sacked for being complicit in all acts of corruption and paper leak,” AISA said in a statement.

“We have seen massive discrepancies in the NEET-UG results declared on June 4. NEET aspirants have been demanding a re-exam. However, the NTA and the Ministry of Education have not responded to their demands,” AISA added.
