42,000 ‘missing’ answer sheets sold as scrap in Bihar


As many as 42,000 answer sheets of Class X exams of Bihar Board, which went missing from SS Inter College, have been recovered from a scrap vendor.

The answer sheets were reportedly sold to a scrap vendor named Pappu Kumar Gupta.

“They regularly buy books and other scraps from the college. It is fine if they bought it with the same purpose, but we are investigating if they had any other intention” said Gopalganj SP Rashid Zaman.

The scrap vendor and an auto driver, who transported the copies, have been arrested by the police.

It may be mentioned here that the bundles of answer scripts had gone missing a day before the board results.

The news surfaced when the Bihar School Examination Board wanted to examine the answer sheets of some students.
