The leak of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Economics paper of Class 12 and the Mathematics paper of Class 10 was reported on Wednesday.

The complaint of the paper leak, Upadhyay said, was made after the CBSE received information from an unnamed source.

However, he defended the CBSE saying that the board has earned a name for itself due to the manner in which it has conducted free and fair examinations in the past. The dates of the fresh examinations and other details will be declared on the board website (www.cbse.nic.in) later.

Earlier, Delhi government's Depty CM Manish Sisodia too raised complaints on the purported leakage of Accountancy paper of Class 12 exam but CBSE denied the paper leak. "Besides, we have also constituted an internal inquiry to find out who leaked the papers", the Minister said. Modi called HRD serve Prakash Javadekar after the Central training board chose to reschedule the exams following reports of a break of question papers. "It was indicated in the papers kept inside the envelope that the question paper was leaked and circulated through four WhatsApp numbers", the letter read.

The minister also informed that new exam dates will be announced soon.

The minister also spoke the fact that the papers were leaked after just half-an-hour before the examination timing.

Javadekar had termed the CBSE examination paper leak issue "unfortunate" and said culprits would not go scot-free.

According to the police official, so far 25 people, including 18 students (seven college students and the rest school students), five tutors and two private persons, were questioned in the matter. Inside this package was a letter which alleged that the papers were leaked and circulated through WhatsApp numbers.

"CBSE chairman should at least give a statement, why hasn't she spoken to students and parents?"

Students are claiming that besides math and economics, many other papers were leaked before the exams.

Like a nightmare come true, lakhs of students appearing for their board exams this year came home to find that they would need to sit for one of their papers again.
