The day one of the class 10 board exams in Bihar saw the disqualification of more than 200 students at an examination centre on the charges of cheating. The flying squad had caught them red-handed while they were using unfair means to write their papers.
Not only this, but police also detained around 100 guardians on the charges of helping the students in cheating. However, all of them were released later. This all happened during the English examination in Chhapra district.
An official of the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) confirmed the disqualification of the students and detention of their guardians. The students and their guardians were so confident of not getting caught that they were cheating openly by using notes written on small piece of papers and the textbooks. Their guardians, instead of waiting for their wards outside the school premise, were standing close to the classrooms' doors and were providing all notes on demand.
TV cameras caught the helpers climbing the school walls in a bid to supply the cheating material. The instances of cheating were also reported from other districts like Shekhpura, Muzaffarpur, Darbhanga, Gaya, Patna, Jehanabad and Bhagalpur in the state.
