The Central Board of Secondary Examination, (CBSE), on Wednesday, said the Board has written to the Delhi Police against fake news and rumours being spread about examination paper leak.

CBSE further said that the board is trying to identify such people and has initiated action against those spreading fake news and rumours.

"So far action has been initiated against uses of various social media platforms and also individuals who are making false and baseless complaints. CBSE has written to Delhi Police Special Cell (MAC) to take stern action against persons involved in circulating fake news about CBSE exam paper leaks on social media platforms and for creating panic amongst students and general public," the CBSE said in a press statement.

CBSE is also trying to ascertain the genuineness of information being received by tracing and contacting individuals making such complaints and has taken follow-up action for security of ongoing exams," it said.

"The Board will continue to locate and identify more links and uploads on YouTube and other social media platforms falsely claiming to be in possession of Board's question papers and file complaints with Delhi Police to take suitable and strict action against miscreants," the release further said.
