Police report to be matched with Board's details, says Partha
Kolkata: In a fresh twist in the alleged leak of Madhyamik question paper from a school in Moynaguri in Japaiguri district, state Education minister Partha Chatterjee on Monday said the police report will be tallied with the report of the Madhyamik Board before announcing any decision.
"I have a lot of questions after scrutinising the report of the Board and certain clarifications are needed. The police are also conducting a probe in this regard. The two reports will be corroborated and if anybody is found guilty, he will not be spared," Chatterjee said.
The minister is expected to hold a meeting with top officials of the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) on Wednesday or Thursday following which the steps will be taken against anyone found guilty.
WBBSE president Kalyanmoy Ganguly has already submitted a report to Chatterjee on Sunday at his Naktala residence.
The headmaster of Moynaguri High School Haridayal Roy had allegedly opened the seal of the papers much before the scheduled time and had allegedly made the question papers of more than one subject available to the first boy of the school before the start of the examination.
Roy and seven other officials appeared before the Board for a hearing in this regard on Friday where the statements of all were recorded.
A report was prepared by the Board that was submitted to Chatterjee on Sunday. Ganguly refused to share anything about the outcome of the hearing but reinstated that punishment will be meted out as per rules of the WBBSE for such acts if the headmaster is found guilty.
