Mumbai: After Marathi, Physics, Mathematics, Statistics and SP, another HSC board question paper, this time that of commerce stream, was leaked before the exam on Friday. Five students were booked from two different exam centres in suburban Kandivali, police said.

According to police, the photos of the exam paper of Book Keeping and Accountancy subject were found stored in the mobile phones of these students.

"These students were checked when they arrived at two different exam centres-- Naravane School and Balbharti Junior College-- both located in Kandivali. The photographs of today's question paper was found stored in their mobile phones," police said, according to PTI.

Two cases have been registered against the students.

"They have been booked under the relevant sections of Maharashtra Prevention of Malpractices at University, Board & Other Specified Exams Act as well as the IT Act," a senior officer attached to Kandivali police station, said.

The officer said that none of the students have been arrested as the exam is underway.

"We will carry out an investigation. But since they are students and their exam is underway this is not the right time to arrest them or take any harsh action," he said.
