In a statement, SSC chairman Ashim Khurana said that a delegation of candidates, who were protesting against the alleged paper leaks, met him along with BJP Delhi MP Manoj Tiwari and handed over a memorandum. They demanded a CBI enquiry into the allegations of leak of questions of the Combined Graduate Level (Tier-II)  Examination 2017 held from 17 to 22 February.

"The commission agreed to recommend to the Department of Personnel and Training to request the government to conduct a CBI enquiry into the allegations of leak of questions of Paper-I on 21 February, and other related issues," the statement said.

Earlier Tiwari, along with the protesting students, met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and apprised him of the concerns raised by the protesting SSC aspirants. The students have been protesting outside the SSC office at CGO complex in New Delhi since February 27, seeking a CBI probe into the alleged paper leak in the Combined Graduate-Level (CGL) exam.
