CBSE Denies Class 12 Accountancy Paper Leak, Says All Seals Found Intact
On CBSE class 12 accountancy paper leak, the Board has said 'some miscreants tried to play mischief by circulating messages through WhatsApp and other social media to disturb the sanctity of examinations.'
Police officials, however, said they have not received any complaint yet, reports PTI.
The development comes after Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia tweeted this morning about the complaints received by him regarding the CBSE paper leak. Copies of the alleged question paper have reportedly been in circulation on WhatsApp since last evening. The same set of papers reportedly reached Mr Sisodia.
Mr Sisodia, who is in charge of education, tweeted that he had asked the Directorate of Education to investigate. He also said a complaint must be filed with the CBSE, which conducts the exams.

A school principal said she was horrified by the possibility of a question paper leak and a re-examination. “It is not just worrying for us but shocking,” said Tania Joshi, the principal of The Indian School. “Parents have been calling us and asking us about a re-exam. I am very, very traumatized for my students. Our teachers are very upset,” she told NDTV.
The Class 12 board exams have been shadowed by controversies this year. There had been allegations of the Chemistry, Physics and Business Studies exam papers being leaked. CBSE spokesperson Rama Sharma had refuted claims that the Chemistry paper had been revealed.
Concerns have been raised about an error in a question in the Class 10 English paper, which confused students. An official from the Board told NDTV that it would make sure no student suffered because of the confusion.
The CBSE board exams 2018 began on 5 March.
