In fact, the exam authority had sought permission from the Court to issue the merit list of candidates.
“Even after the declaration of AIPMT 2015 result, the police authorities can continue with the investigation process and the culprits, who are identified to have used unfair means, can be identified by the board and actions can be taken according to the rules,” CBSE had stated in its affidavit.
