SSC Paper Leak Scandal: CBI to investigate if evidence provided by candidates is found substantiated

Students have gathered from across the country outside the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) headquarters in Delhi to protest against the alleged paper leak in the Combined Graduate Level (CGL) Tier-2 examinations. Calling the SSC examination a “mass-cheating” scam, the students have demanded a CBI investigation into the matter. The students have been protesting since the 27th of the previous month over the exams held between 17th to 21st February.

Opposition leaders have started calling it another Vyapam Scam. RS Surjewala of the Indian National Congress questioned the Prime Minister’s silence on the matter and likened it to the Vyapam Scam. Shashi Tharoor also tweeted his support to the protesting aspirants and the necessity of maintaining the faith of the students on competitive exams.

Anna Hazare also found himself amidst the protesters. Delhi BJP Chief, Manoj Tiwari also met the protesters. He spent an hour with the students listening to their grievances. He also met with Rajnath Singh and discussed the concerns of the students with him. He assured the students that appropriate investigation will be conducted into the mater.
