The Delhi Police has sent a list of students who had allegedly received the leaked Class 10 mathematics and Class 12 economics question papers to the CBSE, an official privy to the probe said. The CBSE had requested the Crime Branch to provide details of students who had received the leaked papers, a senior Crime Branch officer said. Here's more.
Police sent an investigation report with names of 60 students
Last week, the Delhi Police sent an investigation report to the board mentioning the names of over 60 students, the Crime Branch officer said. He added that these students were quizzed by the Crime Branch while it was probing the case. The CBSE announced Class 12 exam results on May 26 while the Class 10 results will be declared today at 4:00 pm.
Leaked paper had surfaced online before the day of exam
Two modules were allegedly involved in leaking the CBSE question papers. Other than the Class 12 economics paper, the Class 10 mathematics paper was also floating online before the scheduled examination. One of the modules was busted in Una town of Himachal Pradesh last month and six people, including a woman, were arrested in connection with leaking the question papers.
Two private school teachers caught in Bawana
In March, the Bawana module was busted in which three people, including two teachers of a private school, were arrested. The teachers had taken photographs of the Class 12 economics paper and sent it via WhatsApp to Tauqeer, who gives private tuition. Tauqeer, in turn, circulated the paper among his students about an hour before the examination started, police said.
The retest issue
The retest for Class 12 economics paper was held on April 25, but the board decided against a re-test of the Class 10 paper, saying the examination was "largely an internal segment" of the school education system.
