Future at stake! SSC CGL 2017 Tier II exam's paper leak row

The SSC Chairman Ashim Khurana met a delegation of protesters on Sunday accompanied by Tiwari and assured them of a repeat exam and a strict CBI probe.

Following massive protests by students, an intervention by social activist Anna Hazare and pressure from political parties such as the Congress and BJP, the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) on Sunday agreed to recommend a CBI inquiry into the paper leak of its exam held on February 21. However, the candidates are alleging a "scam" and demanding a CBI inquiry. "The commission has agreed to suggest to the Department of Personnel and Training to ask the government to conduct a CBI inquiry", Khurana said, according to PTI. Tiwari, who led a delegation of Staff Selection Commission (SSC) aspirants, urged the Home Minister to look into the allegations of irregularities and mass cheating in the Combined Graduate Level-Test Tier II examination held in February.

Delhi Metro today closed the JLN Stadium station for public in the wake of a big students' protest at the nearby CGO Complex.

Tiwari added that if corruption has happened then it should be investigated adding, "We are against corruption and the demand of these students is very genuine".

After all protest made by the candidates, finally, SSC Chairman also recommended the CBI to launch a probe into the matter.

"We demand that this scam, which is at the same scale as Vyapam, perhaps even bigger that it, should be probed by the CBI", said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala in a statement while extending complete support to the agitating students.

The Union minister has also said that the protest should stop. However, SSC aspirants alleged that the question paper has been leaked on social media and staged protests from February 27. "This strengthens the democracy", Hazare told the protestors.

Aspirants have to go through SSC examination to get selected for lower division government jobs.
