SC, Medical students

The petition by a group of students against a direction by the Medical Council of India to discharge these students who were pursuing their degrees at their college. The Supreme Court came down heavily on the petitioners and stated that there shall be no sympathy for people who procured admissions through backdoor entry.

The petitioners argued that the admission was done through a counselling done by the college and that they had been successful in passing through the first- and second-year examinations. However, the court observed that this was not done through a centralised counselling system for admission of students of their own communities to minority institutions; the court saw this as a collusion against the state notification between the students and the institution. Hence, the apex court dismissed the petition.
