Denying any leak of question paper, CBSE said, “All the seals have been found intact at all the centres.”
Further, stating that, there are some people who are trying to create disruption by spreading the rumours of paper leak, the Board said, “During the process of examination, however, at local level, some miscreants have tried to play mischief by circulating messages through WhatsApp and social media to disturb the sanctity of the examinations.”
After the incident, a meeting was conducted by the top officials to know the reason behind the leak of the examination paper.
While this is not the first time this has happened with the Board, earlier a lawyer had complained to CBSE when answer sheets of Class XII chemistry examination were sent through Delhi metro.
Meanwhile, the Board claimed the examination papers are usually kept under great security. A source said, “It is impossible for a student to leak a board paper without being in connivance with some insider as Board papers are kept with utmost security and top officials and teachers are only aware of it.”
A day before the examination, the Board had issued an alert on March 4, 2018, to alert the students against Frivolous Mails / Messages /WhatsApp Texts.
After the news, people and students from all over the country are protesting on social media platforms over the Board’s negligence.
