CBSE Exams 2019: Board Urges Stern Action For Fake News of Paper Leak

CBSE has requested the Delhi police to take stern action against those involved in circulation and spread of fake video claiming paper leak

Bhubaneswar/New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Friday filed a second FIR with the Delhi Police against circulation of fake news regarding paper leaks on social media platforms.

The Board also reportedly requested the Delhi Police to take stern action against the perpetrators, IANS reported.

“The Board has located more uploads on YouTube falsely claiming to have access to the original question papers… and filed yet another complaint and again written to the Delhi Police to take suitable and strict action against miscreants under provision of IPC and IT Act,” the CBSE statement read.

“The Board seeks the cooperation of public not to believe the fake, unverified news and help in maintaining the sanctity of all the examinations at all costs,” the Board said in the statement.

It is worth mentioning that CBSE, last week, advised students not to fall for fake videos/messages on social media and warned of legal action against those who if involve in such messages.

“It has been noticed in the past that certain unscrupulous elements spread rumours by posting fake videos/messages on You Tube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms, obviously with the intention of spreading confusion and panic among students, parents, schools and public,” the CBSE had said in a circular.
