Mumbai: The investigation into the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exam paper leak saw the Mumbra police on Saturday interrogating the principal of the school from where the exam papers were allegedly leaked and where the main accused was employed..

The police said they have observed several irregularities in the functioning of the school in which the main accused, Firoz Khan worked. On Wednesday, Rohit Singh (24), a science and maths tutor, was arrested on charges of circulating SSC question papers leaked by Khan to the students of Brilliant Classes, run by Khan through WhatsApp.  Khan (47), his office boy Imran Shaikh (45), and an IT student Anwarun Hasan (21) were arrested on Tuesday for leaking as many as five SSC papers — algebra, geometry, science-I, science-II and history and political science.

“Khan didn't have valid documentation but he still had access to exam papers. We are questioning the principal as the leak allegedly originated from the school,” said a police official. The principal has told police that she along with Khan had access to the room, in which the papers were stored, officials said. 

The Amboli police, who is investigating the case, have so far arrested four persons in this connection. Eight students have been booked and are facing action under the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act.
