On August 3, a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking re-examination over an alleged paper leak reported on July 24. The petition, filed by NEET aspirant Anshul Sharma, said the primary investigations carried out by the Uttarakhand police points out that five persons (one from Delhi and four from Bihar) belonging to an inter-state racket were arrested on July 23, a day before the entrance exam.
However, the CBSE has denied any paper leak and has said they had matched the original question paper of NEET 2 and found that the seized material is entirely different from the original question paper of the entrance test.
The combined result of NEET 1 and NEET 2 will be declared by August 17.
