NEW DELHI: Three people, including two teachers of a private school, were arrested by the crime branch for their suspected roles in leakage of the Class 12 CBSE Economics paper, the police said on Sunday.

Delhi Police revealed that the Class 12 Economics paper was leaked 40-45 minutes before the start of the exam on March 26 by two teachers of a private school and was forwarded to a coaching centre tutor.

The arrested accused have been identified as Rishabh, 29 and Rohit, 26, both teachers at a private school in Bawana, and Tauqeer, 26, a tutor at a private coaching centre there.

On the days of the examination, Tauqeer used to circulate leaked question papers about an hour before their beginning among his tuition students who would further circulate them among their friends. He used to get the leaked papers on WhatsApp from Rishabh, who is a Physics teacher and Rohit, who is a Mathematics teacher, at the same school.

Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Alok Kumar said, “It is at 9.45 am when the papers are opened. The teachers’ duo used to click the pictures of the papers 40 minutes prior to that and send to Tauqeer who further used to circulate to the students.”

Rohit used to send the papers to Tauqeer on Rishabh’s instructions.

The police zeroed in on Tauqeer by following four WhatsApp numbers provided by the CBSE in its complaint and used for circulating the leaked papers, another officer said.

A student who had got the paper was found and he led the police to Tauqeer who was detained yesterday. He shared details of his accomplices with the police after which the trio was arrested, the police said.

The trio is currently in police custody for two days during which they would be questioned over the money trail and whether they have leaked other papers.

Another teacher at a private school is also under the scanner for his alleged role in the leakage of papers and the police are on the lookout for him.

The Delhi Police had registered two cases involving the leaks.

The first case, related to the leak of Economics paper was lodged on March 27, while the other pertaining to the leak of Mathematics paper was lodged on March 28, following a complaint by the CBSE’s regional director.

Meanwhile, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has suspended KS Rana, the official in charge of the Delhi examination centre from where the papers got leaked.

“On the direction of HRD minister Prakash Javdekar to take swift action against culprits, the Board has suspended KS Rana, the official found lax in supervising examination centre (0859) with immediate effect. A formal inquiry has been instituted,” education secretary A Swarup said.

The examinations for the Class 10 Mathematics and Class 12 Economic papers had been held on March 28 and March 26 respectively.

The Crime Branch has questioned over 60 people in connection with the CBSE paper leak case, including the administrators of over 10 WhatsApp groups on which the leaked question papers were shared.

Those questioned, including tutors and students, had revealed that they got the papers from someone else, an official privy to the probe said.

There is nothing till now to indicate that money was charged for sharing these papers, he said.
