"In case they (police) need any direction, the court can issue the same," it said. The bench also asked the police to file a status report about the steps taken so far to probe the matter.
The matter has been listed for further hearing on December 13. At yesterday's hearing, the Delhi Police informed that it has made eight arrests during the investigation and has filed a charge sheet.
The submissions were made as a result of a plea by Anand Rai who had brought to light the Vyapam scam of Madhya Pradesh and sought a court-monitored SIT/CBI probe.
The plea by Annad Rai requested that the investigation be transferred from the Crime Branch to Special Investigation Team (SIT) which should have experts in computer science and/or to the CBI or any other competent central agency.
The plea also sought direction to the NBE to initiate appropriate action against the candidates whose names were disclosed in the charge sheet for allegedly securing admissions in NEET PG using unfair or fraudulent means.
The court expressed concern over the delay in conducting the investigation and ordered all the concerned parties to submit their response.
An FIR was lodged on February 1 against 11 persons and charge sheet was filed on July 9 this year under various sections of the IPC including 419 (cheating by personation), 420 (cheating) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) and under the Information and Technology Act.
