Dharamsala: Himachal Pradesh Board of School Education (HPBSE) chairman Chaman Lal Gupta on Friday admitted that since 2006 almost 800 students may have ‘benefited’ due to the examination scam unearthed recently.
Addressing media persons, he said that police investigations revealed the period from when the racket was on and how many students were declared pass without them having taken the examinations. He said that the two accused, Ashwini Dogra and Suresh Chaudhary, had been running the racket by using fake stamps and answersheets to get the students passed illegally.
