Bhubaneswar: Rubbishing the allegation of Matric MIL question paper leak on WhatsApp in Kendrapara district ahead of the commencement of the examination sitting today, the Odisha School and Mass Education Secretary Pradipta Kumar Mohapatra said no such thing has happened.

While talking to media, Mohapatra said he talked to Aul Block Education Officer (BEO) and Kendrapara District Education Officer (DEO) and sought a report soon after the rumor spread. As per the reports submitted by them after preliminary inquiry, the allegation was found to be baseless.

However, Mohapatra avoided from speaking anything on the content of the question paper which has been posted on WhatsApp.

“I don’t want to go into the content of the question paper which was seen on WhatsApp as it surfaced at around 10.30 AM, around two hours after the commencement of the examination at 8.30 AM. Mobile phones are not allowed for any staff on examination duty and hence nobody can take photograph of the question paper. Only Centre Superintendent is allowed to keep a mobile,” said Mohapatra.

Earlier, School and Mass Education Minister Badri Patra had also ruled out the question paper leak and assured that an inquiry would be ordered into the incident if need arises.
