A group of students staged a protest against the CBSE question paper leaks at Jantar Mantar in Delhi on Thursday, demanding either a re-examination of all subjects or none at all.

Javadekar termed the CBSE examination paper leak issue "unfortunate" and assured that steps will be taken to ensure that the culprits are brought to book.

The CBSE held the exam for the Class XII Economics paper on Monday and the Class X Maths paper on Wednesday. It said later that "at local level, some miscreants tried to play mischief by circulating messages through WhatsApp and other social media to disturb the sanctity of examinations".

Panic had gripped Class 12 CBSE students on Monday after claims were made on social media sites that the economics paper had been leaked. Moreover, there were reports of the economics paper also being leaked on the same night. At present, the board has not taken any action for the paper leak and it has announced that it is going to conduct the re-examination.

The authorities are now probing class 12 Economics paper leak, the re-examination dates for the same will be declared soon on the official website.

According to CBSE spokesperson Rama Sharma, this year, all papers that were sent across Delhi and overseas had the same set of questions. The board will soon reschedule the exam dates for both the papers and going to conduct the examinations.

Also, the Delhi Police said that they have taken a teacher of a private coaching centre, located in Rajinder Nagar, into their custody in regards to the same. "I also could not sleep, I am also a parent", he said.

The CBSE exam leak comes as a humiliation to the state administration which was conducting the exams after a period of eight years. It says the papers had been leaked the evening before the two examinations. They investigated nearly 25 people, mostly students who had an access to the handwritten question papers. "We are trying to trace the trail of the paper leak". The special team of Delhi Police has initiated the investigation and has spoken to 25 people, mostly students who had access to handwritten question papers before the exam.
