Hundreds of students and parents gathered in protests outside the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) headquarters today in Delhi.

Hand-written question papers were found doing rounds on WhatsApp groups before the examinations.

CBSE chairperson Anita Karwal has stated that the exams will be conducted again and the decision of re-examination is in the favour of the students. Union HRD minister Prakash Javdekar also took to Twitter to calm the students and assured them that the culprits will be nabbed soon.

So far the police have questioned over 30 people over the allegations of the paper leak, most of whom are tutors and students of at different coaching centres. A dozen mobile phones have also been seized. The Delhi Police Crime Branch has stated that they are reverse-tracing the trail of the WhatsApp messages that leaked the papers and the private tutor of a coaching centre in Rajinder Nagar, who was named by CBSE in their FIR is being interrogated. RP Upadhyay, special commissioner of police, Delhi has also stated that a Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been formed and two cases have been registered for the matter.
