HC orders judicial probe into SSC question paper leak
The High Court has ordered a judicial probe into the allegations of question paper leaks in the ongoing SSC examinations. A High Court bench of Justice Jubayer Rahman Chowdhury and Justice Iqbal Kabir passed the order on Thursday in response to a writ petition. The bench also directed the authorities concerned to form an administrative investigative body to look into the allegations, reports UNB. Supreme Court lawyer Ainunnahar Siddiqa, one of the writ petitioners, confirmed the matter. The court  asked the authorities concerned to explain why their failure and inaction to prevent the leakage of question papers should not be declared illegal and unlawful. Twenty government officials, including the education, law and home secretaries, and chairpersons of the education boards, were made respondents to the rule which is returnable in three weeks. She said the court asked the authorities concerned to submit the probe reports before it within 30 days. During the hearing, the bench said: “The government has taken a long time to address the problem of the question paper leaks. So, from now on, we will deal with the matter.” The court said: “Those who are taking the exams now will lead the country after five years. What will happen to the country then?” Comparing drug addiction to question paper leaks, the court said: “This [question paper leak] has become a bigger problem than drug abuse in the country.” Barrister Jyotirmoy Barua and Advocate Ainunahar Siddiqui, who conducted the hearing on behalf of the plaintiff, confirmed the matter, reports Bangla Tribune. Earlier in the day, three lawyers filed a writ petition with the court seeking cancellation of the ongoing SSC exams following the incidents of question papers leaks. Ainunnahar said the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinations for nine out of 10 subjects were held amid the leakage of question papers. There has been widespread criticism and debate over this year’s SSC examination question paper leaks. Several people, including students and teachers, have been arrested in this regard.
