The special court accepted the bail application of Ajinkya Narhari Patil, an employee of the Pune office of Affinity Education Pvt. Ltd. which would have attracted aspiring applicants by promising them to organize their admission to engineering courses through the JEE (Main) for a fee.
The CBI, which dismantled the racketeering on September 2 this year, alleged that the accused owners and officers of Affinity Education compromised the joint (main) entrance exam by resolving questions through remote access and sometimes by providing answers to applicants who purchased their illicit services.

Patil, who was arrested on September 3, disputed claims that he was a “private employee” of Affinity Education primarily involved in phone calls to students interested in being admitted to medical schools in foreign countries.

Special Judge Harish Kumar also ordered that her phone number “always remain open at all times by dropping a pin on Google Maps” to ensure her location is available to the investigator.
“CBI has arrested seven people linked to Affinity Education, including its two directors Siddharth Krishna and Vishwambhar Mani Tripathi and four employees Ritik Singh, Anjum Dawoodani, Animesh Kumar Singh and Ajinkya Narhari Patil, officials said. Another person, Ranjit Singh Thakur, was arrested. of Jamshedpur, ”they said.
