Delhi Police says CBSE Maths paper was also leaked

One of the accused who was earlier arrested in connection with the leak of CBSE class 12 Economics examination paper, is also the culprit behind the leak of Class 10th Mathematics paper, said the crime branch of Delhi Police on Thursday.

The police said Rakesh Kumar, who had been teaching at the DAV school as a PGT economics teacher for eight years, was also found involved with the leaking of the mathematics paper before the scheduled date of the examination on March 28. The first case related to the leak of class 12 Economics question paper was lodged on March 27, while the other pertaining to the leak of class 10 Mathematics paper was lodged on March 28, following a complaint by the board's regional director. Amit Sharma, a clerk and Ashok Kumar, a peon of the school, were also arrested in connection with the case.

During interrogation, Rakesh revealed that he had also planned and executed the leak of class 10 mathematics paper. "The woman is Manju Bala (name changed)", said Alok Kumar, Joint CP (Crime) of the Delhi Police.

The police said the bank manager and cashier were arrested on charges of criminal negligence. Photographs of a handwritten copy of the question paper were leaked on WhatsApp the previous night.


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.

After the CBSE paper leak reports surfaced and three weeks had not passed, a top officer of the Delhi Police has claimed that the case has been solved.

The board will conduct Physical Education paper for Class 12 students tomorrow and the economics re-test will be organised on April 25.

"Rakesh had initially said that when he went to collect the question papers of computer science and information practices from a Union Bank of India branch in Una on March 23, he picked up a packet of economics paper as well".
