Gorakhpur University Postpones Exams After Paper Leak. 'Not A Paper Leak As Exam Wasn't Held', Says Official.

Gorakhpur University postpones two exams after paper leak

New Delhi:  Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur University today postponed two degree examinations after question papers went viral in social media. The administration has set up a high power committee in the university for investigation into B.Sc first year mathematics and B.A second year sociology paper leak, an official told news agency ANI.

However, the Gorakhpur University official has come up with a bizarre definition of paper leak, according to Harsh Kumar Sinha, Public Relations Officer of the varsity, what happened is "technically not a paper leak as exam for the paper which went viral was not held".
 
"Maths and Sociology papers went viral, and as a result, we postponed papers. This is technically not a paper leak as exam for the paper which went viral wasn't held," Mr. Sinha told ANI.

The images of leaked mathematics and sociology papers went viral on Whatsapp and other social media platforms on the night before exam which created panic and outrage among students. According to reports, the inquiry committee will be headed by pro-Vice Chancellor SK Dikshit.

Twitter was quick to respond to the 'spin' the official was trying to make:

"We flushed all the money down the toilet before the robbers came, therefore technically we prevented the robbery. Genius," quipped a user. 
A case has been filed against Dr. Amerendra Singh, Director of Examination, Gorakhpur University under sections 420 (Cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) of Indian Penal Code, section 66 (Computer-related offences) of Information Technology Act and section 10 (penalty for leakage) of the Uttar Pradesh Public Examinations (Prevention of Unfair Means) Act, 1998, reported ANI.

The latest report of leakage of examination papers comes just weeks after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 Economics and Class 10 Mathematics papers were leaked online.

The re-examination of the Class 12 Economics paper will take place on April 25, while the CBSE has decided not to hold the re-test for the Class 10 Mathematics paper.
