TET Leak: Court Orders State to Submit Affidavit


Kolkata: Refusing to interfere in the ongoing tussle over the primary TET question paper leak case, the Calcutta High Court on Thursday directed the West Bengal government to submit an affidavit to clear its stand on the issue.

To draw the court’s attention on the severe irregularities and controversy over the TET exams, a PIL was filed at the High Court by former Kolkata Mayor Bikash Bhattacharya. The next hearing is scheduled to be held on December.

The bench of Justice Debangshu Basak of Calcutta High Court has directed the state government to file the affidavit.

The State Advocate General representing the West Bengal government has argued before the court that as the case is under-investigation the TET results will be released after the probe is completed.

He further added that the probe will be completed within next two weeks and the report will be submitted to the court. On the other hand opposition counsel had demanded CBI probe and cancellation of the TET exams.

He said that the question papers as well as answer papers got leaked on social networking site WhatsApp rendering the entire examination futile.
