The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Thursday issued another advisory related to fake news links on the web about exam paper leaks.
“CBSE has located more uploads on YouTube falsely claiming to have access to the class 10 and 12 original question papers of subjects which are yet to be conducted as per the following schedule,” said the board.
The circular specified the YouTube links of fake news on exam paper leaks.
“The board is keeping a constant vigil and bringing unwanted activities to the notice of police immediately so that suitable and strict action against miscreants can be taken under provisions of IPC and IT Act. FIRs have already been lodged with Delhi Police against persons circulating fake news regarding paper leak and availability of question papers prior to the examinations,” the board claimed.
It added, “It is again appealed to students and parents not to react to such fake news in circulation and join hands with the board for a fair and smooth conduct of examinations.”
The videos uploaded on YouTube regarding paper leaks have been removed from the web page.
It may be mentioned that no sooner the board exams had begun; fake had been propagated on social media channels claiming two papers of classes 10 and 12 had been leaked.
