ABVP stages protest over chemistry paper leak in K’taka

Bengaluru (Karnataka) : The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) activists on Friday staged a protest outside the Pre-University Education (DPUE) building here over the cancellation of chemistry second-year re-examination due to the question paper leak.

The agitators were seen carrying placards and banners, and raised slogans denouncing the PU department. The police also detained several agitators to prevent any untoward incident from occurring.

“We are angry at this. We prepare so hard for the exams,” said one of the protestors.

The Karnataka Government had yesterday suspended 40 officers and other staff in the Pre-University Department after the Chemistry paper of Class XII was leaked for the second time in 10 days.

According to reports, the re-examination will now be held on April 12 as the second leak led to protests by angry parents and teachers in Bengaluru and elsewhere in the state. (ANI)
