After Kolkata Police found the answer sheets are of a Chartered Accountancy (CA) exam conducted in June 2019 being checked by an unauthorised person, ICAI has come out with a clarification that it has already initiated action against the delinquent examiner.

On 24 July, Kolkata Police found 250 CA exam answer sheets at the residence of an unauthorised individual named Pabitra Ray, an accountant who works at a CA firm. According to the Police, he was checking the answer sheets on behalf of his employer Surajit Dutta, the authorised examiner.

“An instance of Examination books being in illegal possession by an unauthorised person has recently been reported at Kolkata involving around 500 copies.
