Police in Dahod filed a complaint of an alleged paper leak incident of the state board exams, which began on Monday.
Reports of discrepancy in the paper at the Dahod’s M and P High School were reported just after the 15 minutes of commencement of the exam.
“The sealed question papers of Class X Gujarati language reached the examination center at 9.15 am and were opened at 9.50 for the exam to start at 10… On reaching the school, the team noticed a photocopy machine in running condition and some paper pieces on the floor along with a Gujarati language textbook,” said A J Shah, chairman, Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB).
According to the rules, no photocopy machine should be on and internet should be disabled on the examination center.
“Since the Collector is investigating the paper leak case, we have ordered the DEO to change the centre’s coordinator,” Shah added.
Also, 10 separate incidents of cheating including three cases of dummy candidates and one case of seizing the mobile phone on the examination center was reported from across the state.
