New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to interfere in an Uttarkhand police probe into alleged leak of question paper for the national eligibility cum entrance test (NEET) for admission to medical colleges.

The plea filed by NEET aspirant Anshul Sharma sought a status report on the leak and wanted it submitted to the top court.

Sharma had said the five persons arrested by the Uttarakhand Police on July 23, a day before the Phase 2 of the entrance test, were part of an inter-state racket. He withdrew the petition after the SC asked him to approach the high court.

The CBSE, which had rejected the paper-leak claim, had gone ahead with the exam. NEET-1 was held on May 1. The combined result will be declared on August 17.
