Delhi police registered an FIR on Wednesday after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) approached them in connection with circulation of fake news about question paper leak.
“The board has located a number of uploads available on YouTube falsely claiming to have access to the original question papers of subjects in which examinations are yet to be conducted such as Accountancy, Chemistry, Geography for Class XII and English, Mathematics and Science for Class X,” PTI quoted a senior CBSE official.
“An FIR has been registered today in this connection and police has also been appealed to (take) suitable and strict action against the miscreants under relevant provisions of IPC and IT Act so that the sanctity of examination is not adversely affected,” he added.
The board has also appealed to students and parents to remain vigilant and calm and cooperate with it in dealing with such unsolicited situations.
Police confirmed that a complaint was received at Madhu Vihar police station from CBSE to take legal action against persons for loading fake videos on internet about leak of question papers, which are spreading panic amongst students.Posted in National
