 Examination-Hall-1728x800The CBSE board, which announced re-examination of two papers on March 28, is now facing anger of students who are holding massive protests at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi.

The students are asking CBSE to hold a re-examination for all papers, instead of just the two announced yesterday. According to them, many other papers were leaked before the exams.

It all started when the authorities came to know that Class-10 maths and Class-12 economics question papers were leaked.

“2-3 papers had been leaked on WhatsApp 30 minutes before the exams,” Union minister Prakash Javadekar said on March 28.

A special investigation team has been formed to look into the matter.

The Delhi Police have questioned several including students, who had access to the handwritten question papers and have reportedly arrested a man named Vicky who runs a coaching centre in Rajinder Nagar.

According to Crime Branch officials, the CBSE had received a complaint by fax on March 23 from an unknown source that a person named Vicky, who runs a coaching institute in Rajendra Nagar, is involved in the leaking of question papers.
