New Delhi: A special investigation team (SIT) of the Delhi police crime branch on Tuesday has summoned the suspended CBSE official K.S. Rana for questioning.

Police said that the investigation team at their office in Shakarpur summoned Rana who was in charge of the exam centre from where Class 12 Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Economics paper was leaked.  

 

Rana was suspended by the CBSE after the SIT had arrested three persons, including two teachers of a private school in the Outer Delhi for allegedly leaking the question paper nearly 90 minutes before the scheduled time of the exam, the police said.

The police busted the second module in Una town in Himachal Pradesh earlier this month. A woman was among the six persons arrested in connection with leaking the CBSE question papers.

In the Bawana module, three persons, including two teachers of a private school, were involved.

The teachers — Rishabh and Rohit — had taken photographs of the economics paper and sent it to Tauqeer. He circulated the paper among his students about an hour before the examination commenced, police said, adding, he had received the paper via WhatsApp from Rishabh and Rohit.

 

DCP G Ramgopal Naik confirmed that Rana had been questioned for three hours in Shakarpur, but he refused to divulge the details. “He was the centre supervisor and was questioned to clarify certain things told by the school rincipal during his questioning. He was asked about the papers accessed by the accused before the scheduled time,” he added.
