CBSE has scrapped both Class 12 economics and Class 10 mathematics exams after the reports that students had been able to access the handwritten question papers.
NEW DELHI: Delhi police has set a special team for investigating the leak of two CBSE question papers. The Central Board of Secondary Education has scrapped both Class 12 economics exam and Class 10 mathematics exam after the reports that students had been able to access the handwritten question papers. The probe which started last evening has so far questioned 25 people, mostly students. The police are hoping to work backwards to trace the source of the CBSE leaked papers that appear to have been circulated over WhatsApp, the encrypted messenger service.
Union Education Minister Prakash Javadekar told reporters that “2-3 papers” had leaked but promised parents and students that the authorities had filed a police complaint right away.
The minister underlined that the leaks appeared to be a localised problem limited just to Delhi.
The minister also contended that the papers were leaked just half-an-hour before the examination.
