Paper leak forces SSC to cancel CPO (SI/ASI) exam, re-examination on June 5

Staff Selection Commission cancels CPO (SI/ASI) examination due to paper leak

Keeping in mind that the question paper for recruitment to the post of Sub Inspector (SI) and Assistant Sub Inspectors (ASI) was leaked on social networking site Facebook, the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has cancelled the written examination.

The SSC CPO (SI/ASI) examination was conducted on March 20, 2016. The date for re-examination has been scheduled for June 5, 2016.

The incident came to light when Neetu Singh, founder of KD Campus that coaches students for competitive exams, posted a page of the question paper on her Facebook wall just five hours before the commencement of the exam.

SSC has put a notice on its website informing the cancellation of the exam.

“The Staff Selection Commission, in order to maintain the integrity and fairness of the selection process, has suo-motu decided to cancel the examination for the Recruitment of Sub-Inspectors in Delhi Police, CAPFs & Asst. Sub-Inspectors in CISF Examination, 2016 held on 20th March, 2016 because one paper of the afternoon session was found to have been compromised. The re-examination for only those candidates who had appeared in the examination in the forenoon and afternoon shifts on 20th March, 2016 will now be held on 5th June, 2016,” the notice said.

Applauding SSC’s move to cancel the paper, Singh said that the matter still remained serious.
