New Delhi : Hundreds of SSC candidates gathered to protest paper leak, demand CBI probe in the matter. The leak had come to light via social media. 

As per reports, it has been learned that answer keys for the question paper were leaked before the examination on February 17.

“It has been brought to the notice of the Commission that the present agitation going on since yesterday near the Office of the Commission by some candidates of CGLE (Tier-II) 2017, is being actively instigated and sponsored by two coaching institutes/agencies with vested interests. The Commission had agreed to meet the representatives of the agitating group yesterday (Wednesday). During that meeting, they were directed to furnish substantive evidence in support of their allegations. Thereafter, the Commission would take an appropriate considered decision in the matter,” Khurana said in a statement.

Student organisations like NSUI and AISA have also extended their support for the protesting students.
