New Delhi: Alleging irregularities in the NEET exam, a plea has been made to the Supreme Court to withdraw the NEET UG 2024 result and conduct the exam again. A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court stating that grace has been given arbitrarily in the NEET exam and due to this 67 students of the same center have got the same 720 marks. A plea has been made for an SIT investigation into the matter.

Serious allegations made in the petition
The petition filed in the Supreme Court states that the National Testing Agency has given grace marks and all this is biased and has been done to give backdoor entry to some students. Expressing doubt, the petitioner said that it has come to light that 67 students appearing for the exam at a particular center have got full marks up to 720. The petitioner has said that the exam was held on May 5 and many complaints have surfaced in which paper leak has been alleged. Two petitions are already pending in the Supreme Court in this matter and a plea has been made to cancel the exam on the basis of paper leak. During the hearing on the first petition, the Supreme Court had also issued a notice, although then the Supreme Court refused to stay the result.

Demand to ban NEET counseling
The present petition has been filed by Abdullah Mohammed Faiz and Shank Roshan Mohiddin, residents of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The petition states that this petition has been filed in the interest of the students. The Supreme Court has been requested to stop the counseling of NEET UG 2024 till the matter is investigated. It has also been said that the matter of irregularities in the examination should be investigated by the SIT and a Special Investigation Team (SIT) should be formed for this.

Petitioner alleges paper leak
It is worth noting that on June 3, a petition was filed in the Supreme Court in the alleged paper leak case in the NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) examination, requesting to conduct the examination again. The petitioner has told the Supreme Court that the question papers of the NEET UG examination held on May 5 were leaked, so instructions should be given to conduct the examination again. Another petition related to this was filed in the Supreme Court on May 17. The Supreme Court refused to stay the exam result. In this case, a bench headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud had issued notice to the respondent on the petitioner's application and fixed July for hearing.
