Mumbai: Thousands of students, who appeared for the 2015 All India Pre-Medical Entrance Test (AIPMT), are confused and anxious to know if the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will declare the results tomorrow i.e. June 12 when the Supreme Court stay ends.
The AIPMT 2015 was marred by controversy after it was brought to the light that the exam paper was leaked by a gang operating in several states.
Following the report, the Haryana police arrested few people, but did not file the full report.
As the Haryana police was busy in its probe, there was clamor to re-conduct the AIPMT afresh by students, teachers and parents.
Tanvi Sarwal along with another petition by Jahnvi Shanker approached the Supreme Court with a plea to re-conduct the AIPMT 2015.
The court while hearing the petition asked the CBSE not to go ahead with the declaration of results till June 9 as it had given another week's time to Haryana Police to complete its probe into the leakage of the question paper and the circulation of its answer key through electric devices in 10 states.
The Supreme Court on June 8 extended, till June 12, the stay of declaration of the All India Pre-Medical Entrance Test (AIPMT) results, over-riding its earlier order restraining the Central Board of Secondary Education to hold back the results till June 9.
The AIPMT were originally scheduled to be declared June 5.
A vacation bench of Justice R.K.Agrawal and Justice Amitava Roy extended the stay on the result's declaration after Additional Solicitor General Pinki Anand mentioned the matter.
Earlier the matter was to come up for hearing June 10.
The court had given Haryana Police a week's time to complete the probe so that it could know the number of people who benefited from the question paper leak.
It is only after having an assessment of the extent to which the integrity of the AIPMT has been compromised that the court will decide on the plea for the re-conduct of the entrance test.
