New Delhi, April 17: Deen Dayal Upadhyay University PRO Harsh Kumar Sinha on Tuesday said Maths and Sociology papers were not leaked as the exams were not conducted. “Maths & Sociology papers were not leaked as they went viral & as a result, we postponed papers. This is technically not a paper leak as the exam for the paper which went viral wasn’t held. A committee has been set up in university for investigation,” Sinha, Public Relation officer of Gorakhpur University told ANI.

On Monday, Deen Dayal Upadhyay University in Gorakhpur was in news for canceling the B.A second year Sociology and B.Sc first year Mathematics exams that were scheduled for April 17 after the alleged leak of the papers on social media.

The pictures of the leaked papers made a hue and cry among the university’s students after they were leaked on social media. The administration of the university had given orders to conduct an investigation into the matter. Pro-Vice-Chancellor SK Dikshit will be the heading the inquiry committee.

“Paper leak is a serious matter. We decided to cancel both the papers to maintain the sanctity of examinations. The matter will be investigated and a case will also be registered against those found guilty,” said PRO of Gorakhpur University, Professor Harsh Sinha.

The BSc second year Chemistry paper had allegedly leaked before its examination on Monday.
