Man arrested for leaking Class 12 paper also leaked Class 10 questionnaire

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Thursday told the Delhi High Court that it decided not to hold re-examination of class 10 Maths test as a scientific evaluation of random answer sheets did not indicate any unusual pattern to believe that there was widespread benefit of the alleged paper leak.

Earlier in the day, DCP Ram Gopal Naik had said that the department had solved the class 10 paper leak case. The Delhi Police Crime Branch had registered two separate cases in connection with leakage of both the question papers.

On March 30, the Ministry for Human Resource Development announced the date for the re-examination of the Class 12 Economics exam, and stated that if at all they would hold a re-exam for Class 10 mathematics, it will be restricted to Delhi and Haryana. The three men were arrested in connection with the economics paper leak case. The question papers of class 12 Economics and class 10 Mathematics exams, scheduled on March 26 and March 28 respectively, were leaked on Whatsapp.

The woman, from Ferozepur in Punjab, was allegedly sent a copy of the leaked paper by Rakesh Kumar, the police said.

Police achieved a major a breakthrough with the arrest of Rakesh, who taught commerce at DAV School in Una in Himachal Pradesh, and two of his colleagues on April 7.

Police have clarified that so far, no monetary angle has come up as a motive for leaking either of the two papers. The police officer said the accused then called student taking tuitions from him at his residence and got the paper handwritten and took its photographs on his mobile.

During interrogation, Rakesh revealed that he had also planned and executed the leak of class 10 mathematics paper.

The economics paper was leaked on March 23 - three days before the exam date - in Himachal Pradesh's Una town and was shared on social networking site WhatsApp by at least 40 groups.
