Bhiwani (Haryana), March 10 (IANS) Class 12 state board English examination was cancelled in Haryana Wednesday after reports of question paper leak, officials said.
The exam was being conducted by Board of School Education Haryana (BSEH), Bhiwani.
‘We got reports that English question paper code number 302 was leaked in Sonipat district and in some other parts of the state. Therefore we decided to cancel the paper and the next date will be announced soon,’ a senior BSEH official told IANS.

‘We have rounded up some people and questioning is on. But so far we have not arrested anybody,’ said a police official.
