Supreme Court Denies Urgency in Impleading CBI, ED in NEET-UG 2024 Paper Leak Case

The Supreme Court, led by a Vacation Bench under Justice A.S. Oka, declined to entertain an urgent plea seeking notice to the CBI and ED in the ongoing NEET-UG 2024 irregularities case.

Advocate Mathews Nedumpara, representing petitioner-students including Shivangi Mishra, had approached the apex court citing irregularities in the exam’s conduct.

  • Petition Urges ED Involvement in InvestigationThe petition filed by Ms. Mishra asserted that the ED has a duty to investigate and prosecute those responsible for leaking NEET exam papers. It advocated for invoking provisions under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) 2002 and the Information Technology Act, 2000, given the severity of the alleged scam.
  • Central Government Moves Case to CBIDespite the petition, the central government had already transferred the NEET case to the CBI, seeking a prompt investigation and an interim report on recent arrests in Bihar before the counselling process starts on July 6.
  • Call for Exam Cancellation and RenewalThe petitioners insisted on cancelling the entire NEET exam due to revelations of widespread paper leaks facilitated by an organized network allegedly involving officials. They argued for conducting a fresh exam to ensure fairness and integrity.
  • Supreme Court Sets July 8 for Detailed HearingThe top court has scheduled a detailed hearing on the NEET-UG 2024 case for July 8, where all aspects, including the demand for cancellation and the role of investigative agencies, will be thoroughly examined.
