Mumbai: Thirty-six Secondary School Certificate (SSC) students in the Mumbai division have been debarred for two examinations by the Maharashtra board for cheating and copying during the examinations that was conducted in March. Apart from these 36, the results of 31 other students are being put on hold or reserved, as they were allegedly involved in the question paper leaks during the examinations.

The SSC examinations were conducted from March 1 to 24 by the board in the entire state. Question papers of two subjects – Information and Technology and Social Science – were leaked an hour before the day of examination at Andheri, Titwala, Kalyan and Mumbra. After the incident, the board and the respective school registered a First Information Report (FIR) at Saki Naka, Amboli and Titwala police station against the students who were involved in this.

“A total of 54 cases were registered out of which 36 are found guilty hence will be debarred for two examinations. These students can reappear now directly in next year in the month of March-2019,” said Subhash Bhorse, secretary in-charge of MSBSHSE, Mumbai division. He further said, “31 cases are being reserved as the investigations are still going on by the police. Depending on the final result of the investigation, they will be either debarred or declared innocent.”

According to our sources at the board office, if these 31 students are found guilty, they are eligible for a punishment of being debarred for three years.
