CBSE further clarified that at the local level "some miscreants have tried to play mischief by circulating messages through Whatsapp to disturb the sanctity of examinations."

However, CBSE had lodged an FIR and decided to take a strict action against such activities.

On Wednesday evening the Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia also tweeted that ''he had received complaints regarding class 12 CBSE accountancy paper leak.''


Following the complaint, Sisodia said that he had ordered an inquiry into the matter

"Asked officers of Directorate of Education to investigate and lodge a complaint with CBSE,'' Sisodia said.

"Swift action must be taken, so that hard-working students don't suffer due to the negligence of CBSE", he added.

Sisodia's statement came after reports of class 12 accountancy question paper allegedly getting leaked on Whatsapp and other social media platform on Thursday.

CBSE committee has also initiated an investigation into the matter.

Though cancellation of the exam was demanded, but no report of exam cancellation or the paper being nullified has yet been officially announced.
