Raiganj: The life science question paper of Madhyamik was allegedly leaked around 15 minutes ahead of the exam on Saturday in Malda district.

Sources said though the exam was scheduled to start at 12pm, photos of the question paper circulated in social media, including Whatsapp in the district. This led to problems in some of the examination centres as examinees and their parents got tensed as whether the examination would be eventually held.

"We checked the photos of the question papers circulated in the social media with the question paper distributed among students. It is exactly the same. It is surprising that the question paper got leaked ahead of the exams," said a teacher.

The incident has made the district education department to order an enquiry.

"An enquiry would be conducted," said Tapash Kumar Biswas, the district inspector of schools (secondary).

Some parents sounded perturbed. "As the question paper has been leaked, most students will score good marks. Also, if the exam is cancelled, it would mean more toil for the students," said a guardian.
