Three persons, including a teacher, were arrested by the Delhi Police from a private school in Una, Himachal Pradesh on Saturday for allegedly leaking the Class XII Economics CBSE paper. The paper was leaked to a student, who wrote down the questions. A photograph of the paper was later clicked by a clerk of the school and circulated. With this, a total of six teachers have been arrested in the case so far.

The three arrested by the Delhi Police Crime Branch include Rakesh, a teacher at the school, Ashok, a peon and Amit, a clerk. The student accused of copying the questions is being questioned by the police.

The original source of the leak, though, is yet to be identified,” an officer said. It was the WhatsApp chain through which the SIT managed to get its first breakthrough in the paper leak.

Police said that over 100 people were members of all the four WhatsApp groups. The names of the groups have been withheld questioning is still underway.
