Youtuber held for question paper leak in Jharkhand

Ranchi: A young Youtuber identified as Vinay Utpal was on Thursday arrested by state’s criminal investigation department (CID) for allegedly leaking maths question paper of class XI exam to be conducted by Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC) hours before the test last Monday.

Soon after the paper went viral on social media, JAC lodged an FIR at Ranchi cyber police station under different sections of IPC and Information Technology.

CID SP Kartik S addressing a press conference today said that they held raids at Hatma Bastee in Ranchi following probe based on technical inputs to arrest the culprit. “The accused during interrogation said that he sourced question paper through his sources to release it on his Youtube channel named Learning Enhancement to popularize it,” said CID SP, adding that they are trying to trace the channels through which the paper got leak for further arrests.
