Supreme Court unwilling to order fresh AIPMT exams due to irregularities

Haryana Police told the apex court the kingpin of the racket, Roop Singh Dangi, was still at large, though progress has been made by the investigation to the case. The bench failed to buy into the idea that delay in running the reexamination might have broad ramification on the entry procedure.

Hearing the entries, the bench said “only at that juncture, any direction for re-running the examination would create large scale mayhem”. It posted the matter for further hearing.

Added Solicitor General Maninder Singh said the whole investigation would take months to finish. He’d previously said the court should take into account the reality that this test has been taken by six lakh students.
Senior promoter Jayant Bhushan, appearing for a few nominees, submitted the authorities should conduct thorough probe as electronic devices like mobile and bluetooth programs like WhatsApp were used.

The inquiring officer submitted that the factory outlet has been identified by the authorities from where submitting records of fake identities procured 72 sim cards of three distinct telecom service providers.

Large scale irregularities including leakage of solution keys for the AIMPT examination of this year came to the light, using the researchers telling the court the solution keys of 123 questions were transmitted through 75 mobile phones in states like Jharkhand, Bihar, Rajasthan and Haryana. Five days past also, the court had said run the examination will be the “last resort”.
