Bihar Board 12th Exam 2018: The Bihar board on Thursday completely changed the class 12 board exam pattern after the intermediate Physics paper was leaked on the social media minutes after the exam began at 9 AM. Soon after the exam paper for class 12 Physics paper leaked, it was widely shared on WhatsApp across various districts. The police have detained six in connection with the paper leak on Thursday.
East Champaran district magistrate Raman Kumar said that a three-member team has been forced to investigate the allegations of paper leak on social media. “We have detained six persons in Motihari, and are interrogating them for their involvement in the so-called leak,” he said.
Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) authorities in Patna, however, rubbished the reports of Physics paper leak.
The class 12 Physics paper was leaked a few days after a photocopy of Biology paper for Class 12th was posted on social media. “There is no chance of the paper being leaked. No one can do anything about someone shared something two and a half hours later. This is someone’s mischief,” Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) chairman Anand Kishore said minutes after the reports circulated.
Claiming that there was “no leak”, Begusarai district magistrate Naushad Yusuf called the reports of paper leak “baseless”. “Model questions are going viral, not original ones. All the exams were conducted peacefully, without the use of unfair means,” he added.
While Kishore and Yusuf declined the reports, Nevada District Magistrate said that the Biology paper was definitely leaked. He also assured a thorough investigation in the case. Kishore later said that the accused would be booked under the Indian Penal Code, Exam Act, and IT Act.
Reacting to the board exam paper leak news, former deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav said, “Nitish Kumar’s administration was totally aware of it but still decided to go ahead with exam rather than cancelling it. Nitish Ji, Stop playing with future of Bihari students, it’s not your politics.”
