New Delhi: Delhi University on Thursday said it has sought a probe by the Delhi Police crime branch into the alleged leak of the B.Com final year economics paper.
"The University of Delhi has advised the chairman of the governing body of the School of Open Learning (SOL) to get the matter investigated by the crime branch of Delhi Police so that the facts are established and the culprits are brought to book," Malay Neerav, the university's joint dean for students' welfare and media coordinator, said in a statement on Thursday.
As per reports, the B.Com final paper was allegedly leaked on web-based chat service WhatsApp, hours before the exam was scheduled to be held on May 27.
However, SOL officials have denied the reports.
Set up in 1962 under the University of Delhi, the SOL offers undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses in humanities and commerce streams through the distance education mode.
