The Delhi Police today said two bank officials and a woman have been arrested over their alleged involvement in leaking the CBSE class 10 mathematics paper, in connivance with a teacher held earlier from Himachal Pradesh.

The police had on April 7 arrested three persons employed with the DAV Centenary Public School in Una - Rakesh Kumar, commerce teacher and centre superintendent of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, Amit, a clerk and Ashok, a peon.

The CBSE's reply came on NGO Social Jurist's plea, filed through advocate Ashok Agarwal, also seeking a court-monitored probe into the recent leaks of the Maths and Economics question papers of class 10 and 12, respectively.

Later following the same modus operandi, he called one of his students who took Mathematics tuition, to copy the Mathematics paper in his handwriting from the photo.

Subsequently, she forwarded it to a relative in Panchkula (Haryana). Cops are likely to book Sharma for class 10 paper leak as well. "During interrogation with main kingpin Rakesh Kumar, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) found that he not only leaked Class 12 Economics paper on March 23 but also Class 10 maths paper to his relative Manju Bala and shared it through WhatsApp in handwritten form", Joint Commissioner of Police Alok Kumar said.
