"We are sitting with an open mind. We will decide it... So far as conducting re-examination is concerned, it is the last resort only," a vacation bench of Justices A K Sikri and U U Lalit cited without ruling out re-conduct of AIPMT as demanded by some parents.

During the hearing, it also observed "why should six lakh people be asked to take up the examination all over again and we should try to find out the number of beneficiaries." The court asked the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Haryana police to trace out the actual numbers of beneficiaries of alleged irregularities in the test so that "wheat can be separated from chaff".

It also directed the law enforcement agencies of other states, mobile service providing companies to assist Haryana Police in the investigation and posted the matters for May 26. Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh, appearing for the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), stated "let us not magnify the problem and we should focus on the real issue."
