On Monday, the Madras High Court's first bench upheld a single judge's decision directing the CB-CID to look into an alleged plot involving DME officials and several private medical institutions to fill 74 management quota post-graduate seats without completing mop-up counselling for the 2020–21 academic year.

The appeal by the selection board secretary, Dr. Devarajan, was dismissed today by the panel of Chief Justice MN Bhandari and Justice N Mala, who affirmed the judgments rendered by Justice N Anand Venkatesh in October 2020.

The single judge had instructed the DGP to make sure that the scope of the investigation was expanded to find the amount of money collected by private colleges from students admitted on August 31, 2020, the deadline for PG admissions, when he was passing judgement on a group of deserving candidates who had lost their chance to be admitted in PG courses or were unable to switch to a better branch of medicine due to the non-conduct of mop-up counselling.
