HS question paper leakage
GUWAHATI, March 24: The Students’ Federation of India (SFI) is not ready to take the Assam Higher Secondary Education Council’s (AHSEC) contention that one of its fourth grade employees is behind the leakage of HS examition question papers this year. The students’ body feels that the entire inquiry is an eyewash which has been designed to save some big fishes involved in it. It feels the need of a thorough inquiry into the leakage of question papers by the Chief Minister’s Special Vigilance Cell by taking top officials in the Council under the purview of the probe.
Talking to newsmen in Guwahati on Saturday, SFI’s State president Kashyap Choudhury and secretary Nirangkush th said that the Council washed its hands of the leakage of HS question papers just by removing the Controller of Examitions from his post. They questioned if such a punishment far from being exemplary would restore people’s faith on the council.
“On March 12 this year, the AHSEC Chairman said in a press release that the CID would inquire into all anomalies in Council’s examitions from 2016. Now when asked on the issue, the chairman says that it has not yet decided any inquiry into the examition anomalies by the CID. A decision on this will be taken on March 29, 2018 when the Council is going to meet on the issue,” Choudhury said, and added: “We want the leakage of HS question papers is inquired by the Chief Minister’s Special Vigilance Cell, by bringing all top officials under the purview of the inquiry. A committee comprising educationists should be formed for preparing guidelines for the council to follow.”
