Taking prompt action in the case of Intermediate English Paper Leak in Uttar Pradesh Board Examination, Yogi Government has suspended DIOS Ballia Brajesh Mishra. Also, the investigation of the case has been handed over to the STF, after which the STF Varanasi unit has also left for Ballia to investigate the matter.

Brajesh Mishra, DIOS Ballia, has been in controversy and has been accused of corruption earlier also. Apart from this, Brajesh Mishra was accused of getting his wife appointed to the post of assistant teacher by ignoring the rules. Now when the matter of paper leak came to light from Ballia, questions have also been raised on the continuous posting of Brajesh Mishra.

The board had earlier claimed that there are very strict anti-cheating measures put up in the exams. The statement had come after over 4.18 lakh students both of class 10 and class 12 skipped the UP Boards exams on the very first day.

While it is not unusual to see examinees dropping out on the opening day of board examinations, this is the highest number of students dropping out on UP boards in recent years. In 2020, around 2.4 lakh students had dropped out on the first day.

Meanwhile, in the ongoing school level exams too there have been many errors reported in the exams across schools. While in a question asked in class 5 Hindi exam, students were asked to write opposite of a tree, in another question in class 7 English paper, students were asked to write opposite of 60. In another exam of English, students were asked a question about mathematics, to name a few.
