New Delhi: The office of the Central Board of Secondary Educ-ation (CBSE) received an unaddressed envelope on March 26, containing handwritten answers of the Class 12 Economics paper.  

In its complaint to the Delhi police on Thursday, the board said that it received a complaint by fax on March 23 from an “unknown source” that a man running a coaching institute in Rajinder Nagar was involved in leaking the question papers. The complaint also named two schools in Rajinder Nagar regarding their involvement in the alleged leak.

On March 26, when the students sat for the Econo-mics paper, the CBSE academic unit at Rouse Avenue received an unaddressed envelope in the evening containing four sheets of hand written answers of the said paper.

“It was indicated in the papers kept inside the envelope that the question paper was leaked and circulated through WhatsApp groups,” the complaint said.

On Monday, panic gripped the students of Class 12 following claims on social media that the Economics paper had been leaked. 

However, the CBSE denied there was any slip up. The Delhi police said it has registered two cases in the matter.

While the first case in connection with the leak of the Economics paper was lodged on March 27, a case pertaining to the Mathematics paper was lodged on March 28 following a complaint by the regional director of CBSE.
