The Apex Court may take a call on June 10 on reconducting the test, as it granted one more week to Haryana Police to file a fresh report indicating the number of beneficiaries of the alleged irregularities in the pre-medical examinations.     

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) was to declare the results of the AIPMT taken by over six lakh students across the country on June 5.

Taking note of pleas seeking re-conduct of the May 3 examinations, a vacation bench of justices Prafulla C Pant and Amitava Roy said it would decide whether to re-conduct the examinations after receiving a status report from the police on June 10.
    
"We are fully aware of all this (declaration of results). The bigger issue is that the sanctity of the examinations is under suspicion. We want to be doubly sure that there is no alternative but to order re-conduct of the examinations," the bench said, adding that it does want to take a decision 'in haste'.
    
"We have to be doubly sure. We do not want to be criticised for any action," it said and asked the police to 'hunt' for other beneficiaries.
    
Large-scale irregularities including leakage of answer keys for the exam came to the light on May 3, with the investigators informing the court that the answer keys of 123 questions were transmitted through 75 mobile phones in states like Bihar, Jharkhand, Rajasthan and Haryana.
