Class 12 Physics question paper leak: Delhi HC seeks status report from CBSE

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday directed the central government and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to submit a detailed status report on the leak of the Class 12 physics question

The bench had earlier directed the government to conduct a fresh inquiry on the extent of the leak with regard to other states.

Each year, the CBSE prepares three sets of question papers for Delhi, rest of India and outside India.

The petition filed by Rajiv Ranjan Dwivedi said the question paper set for the second category was leaked on the internet a day before the examination date.

'The question paper was leaked, downloaded on the internet, sold in the market,' the petition said, adding that the question paper was accessible in the market for Rs.3,000.

While the CBSE has decided to conduct a re-examination of the physics paper in Manipur April 2, the petition had sought direction to the government to conduct re-examination for the rest of the country also.

The petition said that those who succeed in procuring the leaked question paper can certainly take advantage in the IIT JEE examination and getting admission in good colleges.

It said 40 percent of the marks obtained in the Class 12 examination are considered in the IIT JEE exam.
