On March 28, the board announced that Class X Maths and Class XII Economics exams would be reconducted.

A coaching institute owner is allegedly involved in the leak of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) question papers of Class 10 Maths and Class 12 Economics, as per the initial findings of a Delhi Police investgation on Thursday.

Crime Branch officials said that on March 23, the CBSE received by fax from an unknown source a complaint stating that Vicky, who runs the coaching institute in Rajendra Nagar, is involved in the leak of the question papers. The complaint also said two schools in the area were involved in the leak.

The complaint was forwarded to the CBSE regional office in New Delhi the next day, and the office sent a copy of the complaint to a police inspector via WhatsApp the same day.

Subsequently, on March 26, an unaddressed envelope containing four sheets of handwritten answers of the Economics exam held on the day was delivered to the CBSE academic unit at Rouse Avenue.


The Crime Branch is questioning all those whose numbers were shared by the CBSE officials in their complaint. Search is on for the person who forwarded the leaks originally.

Tutors and teachers of coaching centres are under the scanner. Vicky has been traced and questioned. Ten students, who received question papers on WhatsApp, have been identified and will be questioned.
