Meanwhile, on Friday, more evidence emerged that the police and board knew about potential leaks but did not do enough to spare students the ordeal of retests.
About 5 lakh Class XII students wrote their economics paper on Monday and 17 lakh Class X students wrote their maths paper on Wednesday. As reported earlier, CBSE had received a complaint by fax at 4.22 pm on Friday. An ‘unknown source’ said that a man named Vicky, who runs a coaching institute in West Delhi’s Rajinder Nagar, was involved in leaks. The complaint also named two schools in Rajinder Nagar for their involvement.
