Amid massive embarrassment for the government and the CBSE over paper leak, it is now learnt that the CBSE chairperson Anita Karwal received an e-mail alerting her about the Class 10 Mathematics paper leak a day before the exam.
This is said to have been told by the CBSE to the police probing the case.
The CBSE is facing serious criticism from all corners for failing to prevent a leak of the two papers.
Speeding up the probe, the Delhi Police’s Crime Branch wrote to Google seeking electronic footprints of the account from which the email was sent.
Meanwhile, the Crime Branch is now said to have identified over 10 WhatsApp groups, each having 50-60 members, who may have either leaked it online or at least helped propagate it.
The Mathematics and Economics exams were held on March 28 and March 26 respectively.>
