CID begins II PU paper leak probe, seeks info from public
The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Thursday began the probe into the II PU Chemistry question paper leak incident.

A eight-member team led by its Deputy Inspector General of Police Sonia Narang visited the PU Board office and the Government PU Boys’ College in Malleswaram.

“The visits were made to understand the entire process of PU examination, system of setting question papers, their printing and transportation. We will visit the Board often in the coming days to gather more information,” a senior officer from CID told Deccan Herald.

The police held discussions with the students, staff of the College and Board officials. The police will visit other centres in the State if need be, the officer said.

“It’s too early to comment on the involvement of insiders in the Board or in the exam centres. We can’t rule out that possibility. Those who had leaked the papers in 2012 may have played a role this time too. We may pick them up for questioning,” the officer said.

The CID has requested the public to share any information regarding the source of the leak. “The CID has pressed into service experienced investigators including cyber crime and technical experts to investigate from all angles. The PU examinations are still going on. Questioning the examinees will be considered with utmost sensitivity by the CID. We request students and parents, teachers and administrators of colleges and officials connected with the exams to share any information in full confidence. It will be kept confidential,” the agency higher-ups said in a statement. 

“The investigation has revealed that the leaked paper was shared via multimedia messages (MMS), SMS, Whatsapp, Facebook, e-mail and other platforms. The police request those who have either shared or received the paper or information about the leak not to delete it at any cost. The information shared with the CID will facilitate investigation. The police will take action against those who delete such information to hamper investigation,” the statement said.
