BENGALURU: The CID on Wednesday directed the state Department of Pre-university Education to preserve this year’s question papers which are stored in the district treasuries.

This was the CID’s response to a request by the PUE department director seeking permission to dispose or shift the March/April 2016 PUC II final examination question papers which are kept in the treasuries.

Confirming this, department sources said, “We are now finalising the timetable and the question papers may arrive any time. So we need space at the treasuries. Besides, keeping previous year’s question paper may create confusion. Keeping this in mind, we requested the CID for permission to move or dispose them of. But they told us to do panchanama of the papers and keep the treasuries safe.”

According to department sources, the Chemistry question papers are is stored in the treasuries. It may be recalled that the PUC II final Chemistry exam was scheduled thrice and cancelled twice this year, thanks to paper leaks.

“As we had to cancel the re-examination for Chemistry due to the tip-off we got about the paper leak, those question papers are kept in the treasuries,” an official said. Since the paper leak case is with the CID, the department cannot take a decision on disposal of question papers, say officials.
