On March 6, the Delhi Police was approached by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). This was in request to stop the spreading of fake news on social networking sites about a question paper leak.
Rama Sharma, board’s senior public relations officer said that the fake news about question papers being available on various platforms, including social media, prior to the exams had even led to panic and confusion that was going on among the students. The board appealed to both the students and the parents to remain vigilant and calm and cooperate with it in dealing with such situations.
Several measures have been taken, including the launch of a CMTM-CS mobile application and strict instructions on opening of sealed packs of question papers, to help in reducing the leaks.
