SHILLONG, Nov 27 - After leakage of Class IX examination papers in Khasi-Jaintia Hills, the Meghalaya Board of School Education (MBoSE) has rescheduled the Science & Technology examination from November 30 to December 4.
During the ongoing Class IX examinations, some of the question papers were leaked and sold amongst the students.
The Board on Thursday filed an FIR and requested the Police to find the sources of leakage and apprehend those behind the crime.
The Board�s chief executive EP Kharbhih has warned heads of educational Institutions of legal action if the guidelines and procedures, for safe keeping of the question papers, were not followed.
�All Heads of institutions, designated as deposit centres, will be held solely responsible for the safe keeping of the question papers in strict confidentiality as per notifications and guidelines issued by the Board,� Kharbhih stated.
He added that the heads of such centres �will be liable to stern disciplinary action as well as legal action as deemed fit and proper if any shortages, non-availability and leakage of question papers, anomalies and discrepancies on the part of the heads of institutions is reported.�
Meanwhile, MBoSE has constituted a two-member committee who would be investigating the leakage.
