Accused Tauqeer gave leaked paper to over 80 kids: Cops

New Delhi: A few days ahead of their examination of the CBSE Class XII Economics examination, private tutor Tauqeer had promised his students that they will get good marks in their Economics paper.
Delhi Police, on Sunday, said they have reason to believe that over 80 students connected to Tauqeer got access to the leaked Economics paper, in exchange of money.
Sources told Millennium Post that Tauqeer had told these children that the question paper will be given to them before the examination and they all would very easily clear the paper.
"He claimed this was the first time he was involved in such a crime, but we are not going by his testimony. Bis previous records are being scanned," said investigators, adding that the question papers were forwarded via WhatsApp.
When asked about the money exchanged, sources claimed that Tauqeer sold the Economics question paper to each student between Rs 2,500 and Rs 3,000, and distributed the share among the other two co-accused teachers, Rohit and Rishabh, who gave him the question paper before the examination.
Sources further claimed that the beneficiaries (i.e. students) who got the question paper from Tauqeer had forwarded it to other persons, and are most likely to have charged for it.
"Amounts were likely taken by the person who forwarded the paper to his friends," said sources.
A Delhi Police Crime Branch team, on Saturday, had visited the CBSE office in east Delhi, with the purpose was interacting with officials.
Tauqeer – who gives tuition classes for Mathematics – was friends with Rohit and Rishabh, who were also arrested by the Crime Branch team.
Police claim that both the teachers accessed the question paper from the school where it was stored safely.
"We are probing whether the two teachers had any connection with other tuition teachers," said an investigator.
Meanwhile, in Class X Mathematics question paper leak case, police are raiding several places in Delhi and also questioning students in the case.
Till now no arrests have been made.
Moreover, the admins of more than 10 WhatsApp groups were questioned by cops for leakage of both the question papers. The admins include children and teachers.
