Delhi Police on Thursday (20 December) chargesheeted 10 individuals accused in the WhatsApp leak of two CBSE papers of Class X and XII respectively, following an investigation by a special investigation team of the crime branch which looked into the matter, reports The Indian Express. The source of the leak has been traced to a school teacher from Himachal Pradesh.
The WhatsApp forward in question contained leaked question papers of Class X Mathematics and Class XII Economics handwritten by a male and a female student studying in the respective grades. The two students wrote them at the residence of their teacher in Himachal Pradesh, who is the main accused in the case.
“The accused chose the two because he favoured them… the male Class X student was given the question paper by the main accused, Rakesh, who was at the time employed as a Trained Graduate Teacher (TGT) at DAV Public school,” revealed Deputy Commissioner of Police (crime) Dr Ram Gopal Naik.
The 482-page chargesheet concerning the matter has been submitted before the Karkardooma court, and names six individuals from Himachal Pradesh, and four from a convent school in the national capital.
