The Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) on Thursday cancelled its M.D./M.S. entrance test held here last week after a cheating racket was unearthed by the CBI.

“In the wake of an FIR filed by the CBI and a copy of the same received by PGI authorities, it was decided by the administration that the entrance examination for the January 2013 session, which was held on November 10, would be scrapped to avoid litigation and other complications,” PGIMER spokesperson Manju Wadwalkar said here. The entrance test is likely to be conducted in the second week of December. — PTI
