The investigation began on March 28. Police said the hand-written paper was circulated on WhatsApp, and since the messages are end-to-end encrypted, tracing the source was difficult.

The firsts arrests happened from Jharkhand's Chatra district on March 31. Two directors of private coaching centres were held.

A senior official had said the leak either happened when papers were in the board's custody or bank's.
