CBSE Paper Leak: Google Sends Reply To Delhi Police


New Delhi: As the Delhi Police is yet to make a breakthrough in the CBSE paper leak case, Google has replied to the Delhi Police Crime Branch on the details it had sought.

The details pertain to the e-mail address from where CBSE chairperson Anita Karwal was sent a mail about the Class-10 mathematics paper being leaked, an official privy to the probe said.

The e-mail sender stated that the mathematics paper was leaked on WhatsApp and that the exam should be cancelled. The mail also contained 12 images of the handwritten mathematics paper allegedly leaked on WhatsApp.

The Delhi Police had registered two separate cases on March 27 and March 28 to probe the leak of the Class 12 economics paper and Class 10 mathematics paper, following a complaint by the regional director of the CBSE. The cases were registered on charges of criminal breach of trust, cheating and criminal conspiracy.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT), comprising two deputy commissioners of police, four assistant commissioners of police and five inspectors, has been set up to investigate the matter. The team is being supervised by the joint commissioner of police (crime).
