Find the 'leaker' to find the motive
Sushil Kutty explains how politics of leaks assumes intriguing proportions.
All CBSE question papers should henceforth – like film Censor Board certificates, which carry no-smoking and no animals were used in the making of the film claims – carry the legend 'This Q-paper was not leaked at any step of its making.' That requires a 'foolproof' system in place. As of now there is no such system. Or else the class XII Economics paper and class X Mathematics question papers would not have been leaked, placing lakhs of students in the difficult situation of sitting for the test all over again. The fact remains that if the culprit is traced, the motive will be found – political or material.
