The Amboli police is now coordinating with the Titwala police in connection with the SSC paper leak case. They are investigating whether the copies found in students’ phones are the same as the ones sent by the main suspect Feroz Khan, said a police officer the Amboli station.

They are also investigating whether the paper was leaked in Murbad (99 kilometres from Mumbai) and Aurangabad (334 kilometres from Mumbai), where Khan is believed to have been in touch with students.

Khan is the vice-principal of a Mumbra school and runs a coaching institute in Ambernath.
