There were huge protests after the papers of the CGL exams held last year were allegedly leaked. The court had directed a stay order on the SSC results for recruitment exams after the alleged leak.

The matter came up before a bench comprising Justice SA Bobde and Justice NV Ramana.

Last month, the top court had asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to file a detailed status report on the investigation into the case.

On 14 March, 2018, the CBI had registered a preliminary inquiry into the alleged irregularities in the test.

On 42 February, 2018, the commission had issued a notice saying that due to "technical reasons", the exams held on 21 February would be re-conducted on 9 March.
