Second PU Accountancy Question Paper Leaked On Social Media

By Divya

The question paper for the pre-university accountancy was leaked on social media half an hour before the exam conducted on Monday 13 March 2017. But primary and secondary education minister Tanveer Sait dismissed the claim as a rumor although images of the question paper were being circulated on social media platforms.

Education Minister Tanveer Sait has ordered Raichur Deputy Commissioner to conduct an inquiry on how the question paper was transmitted on social media. He also said that action would be initiated against any exam violations.

According to Shikha, director, DPUE, said that the first information about the images being shared on WhatsApp was received by Raichur DC at 12.30 noon, which is two hours after the exam started. "It's not a leak, as all students enter the hall by 10.15 a.m. and are not allowed to leave after that," she said, adding that of the many pages of the question paper, only one is doing the rounds on WhatsApp.

Raichur SP Chetan is investigating into the  PU paper leak matter. It's a mischief by some miscreants and we will find the culprit. Students need not pay heed to any rumors, she said.

This year, the Department of Pre-University Education has taken few measures which include installation of CCTV cameras, where question papers are stored and are monitored at the DPUE head office.
This was following two paper leakages during the 2016 examination.
