New Delhi: The Centre today informed the Supreme Court that the CBI had registered a preliminary inquiry in the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) paper leak case and is investigating the matter.

The petition, filed by advocate ML Sharma, had sought an investigation into the allegations of the leak of questions of the Combined Graduate Level (Tier-II) Examination 2018 held from 17 to 21 February. A bench of Justices RK Agrawal and AM Sapre on 12 March have sought a response from the Centre on the plea without issuing the notice.

Job aspirants have been protesting since 27 February, seeking a CBI investigation into the alleged paper leak.

The examination is an online test and is held to fill clerical posts in government offices.

Amid all the chaos and hullabaloo created due to the alleged paper leak of the Combined Graduate Level Examination (CGLE) Tier II, the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has finally recommended a CBI probe into the same.

Thousands of candidates staged protests and vented their anger and dismay on social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook. Following the allegations, the Paper I conducted on February 21 was cancelled by the Commission on account of technical issues, to investigate the leakage of paper.

The examination was carried out between February 17 to February 21. It was reported that screenshots of question paper along with the answers went viral on social media much before the exam was over. Various aspirants claimed that the answers to many questions were already marked in the paper.

Thousands of candidates have been protesting outside the SSC office at Lodhi Road, New Delhi since February 27 and were demanding a CBI inquiry into the paper leak issue.

The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has now finally given its consent for a CBI probe into the alleged CGLE Tier II paper leak. The government has also agreed to a CBI inquiry into the alleged SSC question paper leak.
