The papers of the Economics exam of class XII held on March 26 and Maths exam of class X held on March 28, were leaked on social media hours before the examination.

In its wake, the CBSE announced a re-examination, thus causing outrage among the students who staged a protest earlier in the day at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar, demanding there should either be re-examinations of all subjects or else of neither.

The CBSE Board also wrote to Delhi Police conveying that it received a complaint on March 23 about the paper leak, and that a coaching institute owner and two schools were named as the perpetrators.

A police investigation into the case has been initiated.
