Climb a fence, scale a wall: Madhyamik reference guides at work

Forty-three people were arrested on Monday across the subdivision of Islampur for aiding students to cheat on the first day of the Madhyamik examinations.

Most of the arrested persons had scaled the walls of schools to drop chits of papers to help the examinees who appeared for their first language first paper.

According to the subdivisional officer of Islampur, Subimal Pal, the arrests were made at eight exam centres. “According to rules, there is a prohibitory order under Section 144 of the CrPC in force around examination centres. Around 1.30pm while doing my rounds at Lodhan High School, I found that about 150-200 youths were throwing answer chits into the campus to be collected by the examinees on the other side of the boundary wall. When we tried to disperse them, they threw stones at us,” Pal said
