NEET-UG case Highlights | SC asks NTA to make full disclosure, CBI to submit status report; matter listed for July 11

The Supreme Court on Monday heard a batch of petitions related to the controversy-ridden medical entrance exam NEET-UG 2024, including those alleging paper leakage and other malpractices in the May 5 test and seeking a direction to conduct it afresh. The Court reflected on the extent of the leak and the status of the investigation carried out by the CBI so far. The SC asked the NTA and the Centre to submit reports on the steps taken and also the possibility of involving data analytics in cyber forensics unit or any employed by the govt to identify suspect cases. The SC while hearing the case also directed to form a multidisciplinary committee to look into matter. While hearing the batch of petitions on the case, SC said that the sanctity of the exam has been compromised and paper leak is an admitted fact. The apex court has posted the matter for hearing on July 11, Thursday. Thank you for staying with us to track all the latest developments of the NEET-UG row, here with DH!

SC directs NTA to make full disclosure

Order as reported by LiveLaw: We intend to direct NTA to make full disclosure. It can broadly be classified into 3 aspects: (1) nature of leak (2) places where leak took place and (3) lag of time between occurrence of leak and conduct of exam.

(1) when the leak of question papers took place

(2) manner in which papers were leaked/disseminated

(3) time duration between leak and actual conduct of exam

In a situation where breach affects entirety of process and it's not possible to segregate beneficiaries from others, it may be necessary to order re-exam: SC

While flagging the above issues, we are of the view that a view on merits would have to be deferred until further facts are placed on record before this court, LiveLaw quotes SC order.
