The Orissa High Court on Wednesday directed the CBSE to re-evaluate answer scripts of those who moved the court alleging discrepancies in the class XII results.

The decision came after some students and their parents went on hunger strike in front of the CBSE's regional office in Bhubaneswar alleging faulty evaluation process leading to their poor score. During the protest a girl student became unconscious during the hunger strike and was hospitalised.

A single judge bench of Biswanath Rath also suggested the aggrieved students to apply for re-evaluation of their answer sheets by 2 pm tomorrow and asked the CBSE to publish their results by June 10, according to PTI.

Besides demanding a CBI probe into the alleged fiasco in publication of results, the agitators also demanded re- evaluation of the answer scripts of those who had applied for rechecking of their answer sheets.

Earlier, a delegation of National Students Union of India (NSUI) met Odisha Governor S.C. Jamir and sought his intervention in resolving the issue, according to Odisha Sun Times

“The Governor expressed his concern over the incident. He has assured us that he would take up the matter with the Chief Minister (Naveen Patnaik) and Union HRD Minister (Prakash Javadekar),” said Itish Pradhan, state NSUI president.

According to another report, a student identified as Mrutyunjay Padhi, who has been declared failed in the Class XII exams with single digit marks in most of the subjects, had attempted self-immolation near the board’s office yesterday by pouring kerosene on himself.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducts Class XII exams annually in the month of March. It declared the Class 12th 2017 results on May 28.
