After protests continue, SSC to recommend CBI probe into paper leak

Lynette PayneMar 05, 2018

Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari on Sunday met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh for a CBI enquiry into the alleged SSC paper leak.

The protest against the alleged question paper leak of Staff Selection Commission (SSC) Combined Graduate Level (CGL) Tier 2 exam spilled into the fifth day on Sunday as protesters continued to demand a CBI probe into the matter. In Bhopal too, the SSC had to cancel the exam after candidates allegedly found that several questions were already marked with answers. "I have full faith in my government, the culprits whoever they may be, will not be spared as the BJP and Delhi state stand by their demand", he added.

On Saturday, Congress leader Deepender Hooda and the National Student's Union of India also joined the protest and expressed solidarity.

On 28 February 2018, the Commission cited the protest to be "instigated by coaching institutes with vested interests, ' and allowed candidates time till evening to present their case".

The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a plea seeking an investigation into the alleged Staff Selection Commission (SSC) exam paper leak.

"I now urge the protesting students, whom I have supported all the way, to call off their agitation". I assure them that the process of CBI investigation has started, " Manoj Tiwari said. "This strengthens the democracy", said Hazare.

The metro station in south Delhi was closed due to increasing numbers of SSC (Staff Selection Commission) aspirants, who have been protesting against an alleged scam in the SSC examination, a senior CISF official told IANS.

Surjewala said that the issue is very important as the SSC conducts recruitment examinations for various Ministries and more than 10 million students appear for around 12,000 to 40,000 government posts.
