Lawyer Tarun Narang wrote to CBSE, expressing his concern. “In my view, it’s very unsafe to carry envelope containing answer sheets by one person without any security in Delhi Metro that too between common public. It should be dispatched safely in way of parcels to CBSE by concerned centres by insured speed post without any delay,” ANI reported Narang as having said in his letter. The Delhi-based lawyer asked for strict action against the centre and their superintendent and also asked for setting up of an independent committee to probe the incident.
