A private college under investigation for allegedly rigging the HSC Maths paper in Maharashtra also tampered with chemistry and physics questions to help students score higher, a Mumbai crime branch official said on Thursday.
The alleged blunder came to light after the Mumbai police scrutinized the WhatsApp messages of several students of Matoshree Bhagubai Bambare Agriculture and Science College in Ahmednagar and questioned its principal and several teachers arrested in the maths paper case, an official said.
So far, five people have been arrested in connection with the case, while the owner of the college is absconding. More arrests are expected, he said.
Maths questions were given to 119 students associated with the college an hour before the exam, he said.
Later, physics and chemistry classes were also leaked to help students score higher percentage marks, the official said.
The Mumbai police launched an investigation last month after a moderator found that a student of Dr. Antonio D’Silva High School and Junior College in Dadar had received a maths paper on his mobile phone before an exam.
Apparently, the student sent the question paper to another person and got the answer on his phone.
