Lucknow: A day after cancelling Applied Physics exams, the Uttar Pradesh government on Saturday cancelled the exam of Applied Maths conducted by Technical Education Board scheduled for May 16 following reports that the paper has been leaked.
"One paper each of Applied Maths-1 and Applied Physics were found missing from the question paper bundle at an examination centre in Mathura yesterday after which the bundles were sealed and handed over to the police," news agency PTI quoted Mukul Singhal, principal secretary Technical education, as saying.
Mukul Singhal told Hindustan Times that both the papers were leaked from Edify Institute of Polytechnic in Mathura.
The Maths paper slated for the second half on May 16 has been cancelled and the superintendent of the examination centre has been removed and the observor suspended, Singhal added.
A case in this connection has been lodged at the Farah police station in Mathura, he said, adding, strong action will be taken against those found responsible.
The applied physics paper was cancelled yesterday.
After the applied physics paper leak, the council issued an order to all centre superintendents to return the question paper packets without breaking the seal.
A team of officials from the council that went to Edify Institute of Polytechnic to investigate the matter found the packets containing the question papers open.
“Team found that the seals of both the packets of applied physics and applied mathematics were broken and one paper was missing from each packet,” Singhal said.
