While hearing a batch of petitions regarding the re-examination of NEET-UG 2024,  Chief Justice DY Chandrachud on Monday said the leak of the medical examination entrance paper is an 'admitted fact'.

He stated that before making a decision to hold a re-examination, 'we must be conscious of the extent of the leak as we are dealing with 23 lakh students', reported India Today.

A bench led by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud, along with Justices JB Pardiwala and Manoj Misra, is reviewing as many as 38 petitions related to the exam.
