The Supreme Court of India on Thursday, May 21 directed the Haryana police to find the perpetrators who benefitted from the AIPMT 2015 answer key leak stating that a re-examination of the exam was the last resort.  The Court’s order comes a day after some answer keys held by the four accused were found to match to those released by the CBSE on 18 May.

“Cancellation of exam is the last resort. If the police are able to identify those who received the benefits of irregularities, there may not be a need to hold exam afresh,” said the bench led by Justice A K Sikri. The bench has fixed May 26 to hear a further batch of petitions filed by some candidates to hold the exam again.

 

 

Earlier, on Tuesday the Supreme Court had issued notices to the Centre, Haryana Government and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on petitions filed for re-examination of AIPMT 2015 due to alleged paper leaks in the exam.

Taking into account the large number of candidates for the exam, the Court ruled that if the beneficiaries of the leaked answer keys were identified, CBSE could release the result by simply excluding them.

The national level medical entrance exam AIPMT 2015 landed into controversy after Haryana police busted an exam racket with the arrest of four people for allegedly leaking AIPMT 2015 Answer Keys. The investigation team of Haryana police had also approached CBSE to verify the answer keys recovered from the gang.

 

Police had arrested four persons including an MBBS student, from Rohtak on May 3. The four arrested had allegedly passed on AIPMT 2015 answer keys to students using vests with SIM card units and Bluetooth enabled earpieces during the All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT).

 

According to the police, the gang members had made deals with nine students offering them the answer keys for a fee ranging from Rs 15 lakh to 20 lakh.
