Maharashtra Board SSC History Paper Leaked Before the Exam

Maharashtra Board SSC History Paper Leaked Before the Exam

Two students taking the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examination at Sacred Heart School in Kalyan yesterday, were found with images of the Social Science (English Medium) paper on their mobile phones nearly an hour before the examination's scheduled time.

The images of the question paper allegedly sent to the students by one Vinita madam from a coaching class.

Anthony also said that the school had given the police the names of 12 students who were found to have the leaked question paper. The school officials immediately informed the State Board. "Through some students, we learnt about an impending leak and chose to check the bags of the students coming to the centre", Albin Anthony, administrator, Sacred Heart School, told Mirror. "We did get a call at around 10 am from the school authorities regarding the issue". "We received a complaint from the school and have asked them to file an FIR with the police", said Subhash Borse, secretary, Mumbai Division.

A bench of Justices RK Agrawal and AM Sapre took note of the Centre's submission and disposed off a PIL seeking a CBI probe into the paper leak case. "Apart from sending the paper to students, in her messages, Khatwani also told them to forward the paper to some other students", Anthony said. The school has approached Titwala police. The descriptive paper, which was scheduled to be held on 31 March, has now been postponed to May.

The Highre Secondary Certificate Examination (HSC) is conducted by the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary & Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) during the month of February and March through its nine Divisional Boards, which are primarily located at Pune, Mumbai, Nashik, Aurangabad, Kolhapur, Latur, Nagpu, Amravati and Ratnagiri.
