Case registered as question papers of 2 SSC subjects leaked in Thane

Thane, March 21

Question papers of two subjects of the SSC (Class X) exam conducted by the Maharashtra State Board were found leaked at Bhiwandi in Thane district of Maharashtra on Wednesday, police said.

A case was registered at Narpoli police station against an unidentified person.

“As per the complaint filed by a state board official, examination of history and political science subjects was scheduled to take place on Wednesday,” senior inspector MB Shinde of Narpoli police station said on Thursday.

“For the exam that was to start at 11 am, students were expected to be in the exam hall by 10.15 am. However, outside an exam centre at Kalher in Bhiwandi, the board official found some girl students checking their mobile phones inside an auto-rickshaw,” he added.

When the official checked their phones, he found the question papers of history and political science subjects.

“The girls had received these question papers through a messaging application. When the actual question papers were tallied with those on the mobiles, they were found to be the same,” Shinde added.

A case was registered under Section 406 (criminal breach of trust) of the IPC and Section 72 of the Information Technology Act, police said, adding that nobody had been arrested so far.

According to police, question papers of algebra, geometry and science subjects were also allegedly leaked in Bhiwandi earlier.
