GUWAHATI, March 18: Assam Police today nabbed the conspirator behind the circulation of the morphed picture of the Geography question paper of the High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) Class 10 examination.

The arrested individual has been recognized as Masoom Ali residing in Nagaon. Earlier today, the accused had shared the morphed picture on Whatsapp, and later circulated it on social media ahead of the exam scheduled to be held on March 20.

Nevertheless, the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) verified that the recent leak is untrue and the paper is from 2021.

It was suspected that some miscreants did the same with an aim to disrupt the ongoing investigation over the latest paper leak incidents.

Meanwhile, Assam Education Minister Ranoj Pegu tweeted two images, the original 2021 question paper on Geography along with the modified picture. Pegu also commanded the concerned authority to file an FIR in this regard.

This prompted Assam CM Sarma to direct SEBA to reschedule the exams. And now, SEBA announced a fresh date for all MIL/ English (IL) subjects to be held on April 1.
