“Our Deputy Secretary received a message on Whatsapp with an image of the first page of the day’s question paper at 1.43 p.m. Following this, we lodged an FIR with the Bidhannagar cyber crime department of police,” West Bengal Board of Secondary Examination (WBBSE) president Kalyanmoy Ganguly told a press meet.

The source of the image is yet to be traced, he said.

On the shortcoming in the system, Ganguly said: “This is not lack of vigilance, but a habit of not to stay away from mobile phones. I will strictly ensure that no one carries cellphone to the examination venue.”
