CBSE, which had rejected the claim of paper leak, had conduced the NEET Phase II examination on July 24 while NEET-I was held on May 1. The combined results of NEET-I and NEET-II will be declared on August 17.

CBSE had claimed that it was an attempt made by some unscrupulous elements to cheat the candidates on false promises.
