The inspector-in-charge of Kalna police station, examined the questions which was already been circulated among some section of the students via WhatsApp.
Later, the officer suggested the university authority that it was better to stop the examination for the day.

question which was printed for Wednesday’s examination. We suspect that there is some insider who could leak the questions,” an investigating officer said.
However, the university authority has decided to inquire about this incident separately.
Some of the professors, who were directly involved in setting up the question were shocked. They told the police that they do not have any idea about how the leak could have taken place.
