New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday said that if the sanctity of the medical entrance exam NEET-UG 2024 had been “lost” and if its question paper leak was publicized through social media, it would have to order a re-test. A bench headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud also said that if question papers are leaked through Telegram, WhatsApp and electronic media, “it spreads like wildfire”.

A bench comprising Justices JB Pardiwala and Manoj Mishra said, “One thing is clear that the question paper is cracked.

“If the sanctity of the test is lost, a retest will have to be ordered. If we are unable to identify the culprits, a retrial will have to be ordered,” the bench observed, adding that a retrial would have to be ordered if the leak was publicized through social media.

“We should not be in self-denial over what happened,” it said, “assuming the government does not cancel the exam, what will it do to identify the beneficiaries of the question paper leak?” According to the cause list uploaded on the Supreme Court website on July 8, the petitions are listed before a bench of Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justices JB Pardiwala and Manoj Mishra.
