A section of candidates who appeared for the examination at the Upendranath Verma Inter College in Chatra alleged that the seal of the question paper was broken at the principal's office before the schedule.

Alleging paper leak, they created a ruckus.

On getting to know about the incident, Deputy Commissioner Ramesh Gholap and SP Vikas Pandey went to the centre.

Additional Collector Arvind Kumar, who was the nodal officer for the examination, said the allegations of the paper leak were baseless.

About a dozen aspirants in an examination hall were creating a ruckus, he said, adding that it went peacefully in the eight other halls of the centre.

A section of aspirants at JJS College in Jamtara's Mihijam also created a ruckus, alleging paper leak. They claimed that the question paper of General Studies was opened before it reached the examination hall.

Deputy Commissioner Kumud Sahay and Sub-Divisional Officer Anant Kumar visited the centre after receiving information about the incident.

Kumar said that there was no possibility of a paper leak but the allegations will be investigated.

In January, the Combined Graduate Level (CGL) examination was cancelled as the question paper was leaked hours before the test, conducted by Jharkhand Staff Selection Commission, was to start.
