The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to scrap the Combined Graduate Level (CGL) examinations conducted by the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) in 2017 whose question papers had allegedly been leaked.

A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde refused to scrap the exams. Senior advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for the petitioner, sought directions to scrap the 2017 CGL examinations alleging that there were large scale malpractices and alleged favouritism given to candidates appearing in the examination.

It was alleged that pictures of some of the questions of the CGL Tier-II Exam, 2017, were leaked on social media and had gone viral. It had led to major protests.
