CBSE paper leak: Delhi Police raids coaching centre in Rajinder Nagar suspected to be behind Class 10, Class 12 exam leaks

The Delhi Police conducted raids at a coaching centre in New Delhi's Rajinder Nagar in connection with the CBSE Class X and Class XII exam paper leak, reports said on Thursday.

This comes a day after the CBSE decided to re-conduct the exams for Class X mathematics and Class XII economics papers after news reports claimed that mathematics and economics papers were leaked on WhatsApp.

The CBSE, in a complaint to the Delhi Police, said that it received a fax on 23 March naming a person who ran a coaching institute in Sector 8, Rajinder Nagar as the person responsible for the exam paper leak, reported ANI. CNN-News18 identified the person as 'Vicky'.

The CBSE also said that the fax it received mentioned two schools in the same area who were involved in the alleged exam paper leak.

The Delhi Police Crime Branch set up a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the alleged leak. The SIT was formed after the CBSE registered two cases with the crime branch.

The first case in connection with the leak of economics paper was lodged on Tuesday while the case pertaining to mathematics paper was lodged on Wednesday, following a complaint by the regional director of CBSE. The cases were registered on charges of criminal breach of trust, cheating and criminal conspiracy.

"We have received snapshots of the handwritten paper circulated through Whatsapp from the complainant. We are trying to ascertain the source of these messages. Since Whatsapp messages are end-to-end encrypted, we are facing a bit of difficulty in tracing the source," said an officer privy to the probe.

The officer also said that they have not questioned any official from any of the examination centres or from the board. The questioning will happen once the source of the messages is traced.

According to media reports, Special Commissioner of Police, RP Upadhayay, said that the SIT team will be headed by Joint Commissioner Alok Kumar and will also have other rank officers in the probe.
