The Class 10 mathematics examination of the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) held at the examination centre in Guru Teg Bahadur Public School, Ferro Chechi, near Kahnuwan, in the morning session on Monday was cancelled after a flying squad detected several cases of mass copying.


A PSEB team led by district education officer (secondary) Inderjit Singh inspected the centre and recovered copying material and blank papers from the examinees in large numbers. The team also recovered a photostat copy of the question paper from a woman supporter of an examinee outside the examination centre.

Inderjit Singh spoke over the phone to the PSEB chairman and the director general of school education, recommending cancellation of the examination centre for all the remaining examinations. The DEO also sought departmental action against the supervisory staff of the examination centre, where 297 students were taking the examination, for allegedly allowing the students to use unfair means.
