A supervising teacher was caught on the camera helping students cheat in the ongoing Haryana Class 10 board examination in Jhajjar town.

In a video recorded on Tuesday, the teacher is seen reading out the answers to some of the students from an answer key in her hand during the science paper at Government Girls Senior Secondary School in Jhajjar. When other students try to cheat from her answer key, she starts scolding them.

She hides the answer key once she notices the camera pointed at her from outside the window, while a student cheating in the class quickly shuts the window.

Jhajjar district education officer (DEO) Satbir Siwach said they have relieved the teacher of duty and have started an inquiry.

“We will get the inquiry reports soon after which we will see what needs to be done,” Siwach said, adding that the paper was not leaked as reported in the media.

The Board of School Education Haryana (BSEH) has taken several measures to stop using unfair means, but incidents of copying and cheating continue unabated in the state’s schools.

A board spokesperson said they have registered 2,898 cases of copying so far in the ongoing Class 10 and 12 board exams.

District administrations have also imposed section 144 of the CrPC barring a collection of more than four people around the exam centres across the state. However, the police have largely failed to ensure the implementation of the prohibitory orders.
