The court also directed the petitioner to present all her original documents. This order was issued by Justice Rajesh Singh Chauhan in response to a petition filed by Ayushi Patel, a NEET-UG 2024 aspirant from Lucknow. The bench emphasized the seriousness of the matter due to its impact on the future of aspirants, according to the government’s counsel.

Ayushi Patel's counsel argued that her result was not generated due to a torn and damaged Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) sheet. The petitioner requested the court to instruct the Union government to initiate an inquiry against the NTA and to halt the finalization of the counselling process.
