Class 12 Chemistry question papers in Karnataka were leaked once again, triggering protests by several students and their parents across the state. Following this, the board has postponed the pre-university course exam for the second time in 10 days. The board had last week postponed the Chemistry exam after the question papers were leaked and it was revealed after the exams were held on March 21.
The development has affected more than 1.4 lakh students, especially those appearing for the common entrance test as their regular examinations are still not complete. Parents and students are demanding the removal of Education Minister K Ratnakar as they are protesting against the board. The protests have also taken a political turn with the MLAs from Congress too joining the stir. (Also read. CBSE denies question paper leak)
"We will find out who is responsible for this,"Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said reacting to the development. The previous paper was leaked near an examination centre in a women's college at Ballari and at a college at Malur in Kolar district, according to preliminary inquiry.
