The results, declared around 2:15 am, are available on the official website, aiimsexams.org, and also on the websites of other six AIIMS. The entrance examination for the MBBS course was conducted on 28 May at various centres across the country.

A total of 2,84,737 candidates appeared, out of which 4,905 have qualified and are eligible for counselling session in AIIMS.

"For the first time in its history, AIIMS New Delhi will be admitting 100 students for this session," Dr Ashok Kumar Jaryal, head of exams, AIIMS said.

On 31 May, Anand Rai, who exposed the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh, had alleged that the question papers of this year's entrance exam for the MBBS course were leaked, following which the institute had constituted the committee to probe how snapshots of the test came out in public.

The AIIMS committee in its report has stated that there was no question paper leak though some candidates in an examination centre in Uttar Pradesh indulged in cheating in connivance with some officials.

It also recommended a CBI probe into the matter. The sources said the premier medical institute through its internal mechanism has identified the candidates and the centre.

Rai, in a series of tweets, posted images of question papers of the entrance examination. He claimed to have received the question paper screenshots from a source who said these were leaked from a college in Lucknow when the online test was on. Rai had also tagged the Prime Minister's Office in his tweet and sought a CBI enquiry into the issue.
