Future at stake! SSC CGL 2017 Tier II exam's paper leak row

After days of protests by candidates for Staff Selection Commission (SSC) exam, the Supreme Court on Monday said that it will hear the plea seeking an investigation against the alleged leak of examination paper for the combined graduate level exam - SSC CGL tier 2 on March 12.

The CGL exam was held from February 17 to 21.

Some are also alleging that a few students were benefitted by the leak (but there is nothing to prove the allegations).

Earlier on Feb, 28 a group of students led by BJP MP Manoj Tiwari took the streets against the alleged leak in the SSC examination and termed it as "mass cheating".

Besides, to vent their anger, the aspirants have taken to social media platforms and urged the HRD Ministry and Prime Minister's Office to look into the matter. In Bhopal too, the SSC had to cancel the exam after candidates allegedly found that several questions were already marked with answers.

In the wake of protest by SSC aspirants here, the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium Metro Station was closed down on Saturday for an indefinite period as a precautionary measure, officials said.

The SSC then announced that the exam will be re-conducted on March 9.

"We have accepted demands of protesting candidates and have given orders for CBI inquiry, protest should now stop", news agency ANI reported Rajnath Singh as saying.

Later, the delegation met SSC chairperson Ashim Khurana. Hazare also met with the protesting students personally on Sunday and seconded their demand for a CBI probe.

"We demand that this scam, which is at the same scale as Vyapam, perhaps even bigger that it, should be probed by the CBI", said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala in a statement while extending complete support to the agitating students. ABVP, on the other hand wants probe into nexus of particular coaching centres and the former Chairman of SSC.
