Bihar exam board expels 1,000 students for cheating in Class 12
Nearly 1,000 students were expelled for cheating during the Class 12 examinations in Bihar, officials said on Saturday.
Anand Kishore, the chairman of the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB), said in Patna that more the students were expelled “for adopting unfair means” during the examinations that concluded on Friday.
The examinations had started on February 6.
The chairman said that 25 fake examiners were also caught and FIRs were lodged against guardians for helping their wards to cheat in the examinations.
He said the examinations this time were held in a fair manner this time and mass cheating in Bihar was a thing of the past. “It is not possible now.”
