A vacation bench comprising justices R K Agarwal and Amitabha Roy said it will shortly pronounce judgement and asked the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) not to declare the AIPMT results till then.

During the hearing, the bench said, "The examination stands vitiated even if one student is being benefited illegally.”

"We are not holding CBSE guilty as such. Taking into consideration the past such incidents, CBSE ought to have been cognisant of these things. It had been happening for last two-three years," it said.
Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar, appearing for CBSE, opposed the contentions seeking cancellation of the test, saying, "6.3 lakh students cannot be made to take the exam afresh when only 44 students have been found involved in taking benefits through unfair means."

Earlier, the vacation bench had asked Haryana Police to file a fresh report indicating the number of beneficiaries of the alleged irregularities in the pre-medical examination. It had also asked the police to identify as many candidates as possible who had been benefited from the alleged leak.
CBSE was to declare the results of AIPMT, taken by over six lakh students, on June 5.
