The Board, according to a statement, has also requested Delhi Police in writing to take suitable and strict action against miscreants under provisions of IPC and IT Act, ‘so that the sanctity of examinations and several security initiatives taken by the Board to conduct fair and smooth examinations are not adversely affected’.
Beginning on February 15, 2019, CBSE has so far conducted examinations in 136 subject.
“In order to conduct examinations in a smooth manner, the Board has also released instructions to all the students and parents to be aware of fake news regarding paper leak, availability of question papers prior to the examinations on various platforms including social media, which is circulated by unscrupulous persons for creating panic and confusion among students,” Board’s public relation officer Rama Sharma said.
“The Board has located a number of uploads available on You Tube falsely claiming to have access to the original question papers of subjects in which examinations are yet to be conducted such as – Accountancy, Chemistry, Geography Class XII, English, Mathematics and Science of Class X. An FIR has been filed today in this connection,” she added.
