UP board :  English question paper’s seal found broken

A STATE Board examination centre administrator and three assistant teachers have been booked for negligence after the seal for Friday’s English question paper was “mistakenly” broken at a school in Hardoi. Police said the matter came to light on Thursday. Administrator Aravind Kumar and teachers Sama Parveen, Ranjana Kannaujia and Purnima Pandey allegedly opened the English question paper by mistake when they were supposed to open the Hindi question paper instead. Soon, higher officials were informed and a new paper was arranged for Friday exam at 85 centres.

Late night, a new set of papers were brought and examination in all the 85 centres were conducted smoothly on Friday,” he added.
