Following the circulation of the Urdu question paper on social media platforms on Friday, the Haryana School Education Board swiftly decided to annul the examination. An FIR has been lodged against multiple individuals involved in the incident, including the student accused of leaking the paper, his relative Mushtaq, examination centre supervisor Anwar Hussain, Superintendent Ravindere Kumar, and observer Vikram. Charges have been filed under relevant sections of the Haryana Public Examination Act, as well as Sections 188 and 120-B of the Indian Penal Code, at Nuh Sadar Police Station.
